If you're in New York Friday night, take a gander at the Empire State Building. If you're not in New York, check it out here:

Empire State Building

The building's lights are shining orange and blue in honor of Hall of Famer Gary Carter, a former Met who died on Thursday at the age of 57.

A fantastic tribute and one befitting Carter.

     This looks really cool and is a fine gesture.  Just curious, I wonder if they will have the lights on in certain offices that would form a number "8"?

Gary Carter certainly was smiling from above at the gleaming beauty of a building, The Empire State Building.
His smile will live on for ever in our hearts and minds for he was a fantastic Met, a great family man and a contributor to the lovely state of New York.
Gary, we will miss you; however, we will never forget you.
As his daughter Kimmie stated, he 'is in God's Hall of Fame now' and that she believed her Dad walked through the gates to a standing ovation.
Well Gary, kid, that standing ovation will continue forever. You are truly in a field of dreams!
