The Empire State Building is dark in sympathy for the people of Paris after more than 120 people were killed in Friday's series of shootings and explosions.

Saturday marked the second consecutive night the 102-story New York landmark was not lit up.

The 408-foot spire atop One World Trade Center was lit again Saturday night in the colors of the French flag. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the spire will remain lit blue, white and red on Sunday.

New York City's Mayor Bill de Blasio says an arch in Manhattan's Washington Square Park was also illuminated with the French colors on Saturday.
