Landmarks across New York State will be lit blue this coming week to honor Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the move over the weekend – after Ginsburg died from complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer.
She was 87-years-old and spent her final years not he bench as a leader of the court.
The following landmarks will be lit blue in New York State:
- One World Trade Center
- Albany International Airport Gateway
- Alfred E. Smith State Office Building
- Grand Central Terminal – Pershing Square Viaduct
- H. Carl McCall SUNY Building
- Kosciuszko Bridge
- Olympic Jumping Complex
- New York State Fairgrounds – Main Gate and Exposition Center
- New York State Education Department Building

- Mid-Hudson Bridge
“As we mourn the loss of one of America’s most prominent and inspiring jurists, New York State will take a moment to celebrate the extraordinary legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her precedent-shattering contributions to gender equity, civil rights and jurisprudence,” Cuomo said in a statement. “In honor of Justice Ginsburg, I am directing landmarks throughout our state to be lit blue, the color of justice. New Yorkers from all walks of life should reflect on the life of Justice Ginsburg and remember all that she did for our nation as we view these beautifully lit monuments tonight.”
