One of New York's most iconic landmarks has launched a new illumination feature that takes a page out of the Eiffel Tower's playbook. 

Over the weekend, New York's Empire State Building, which soars 1,454 feet above Midtown Manhattan, erupted in a sparkle of twinkle lights, showing off a new regular feature: For five minutes, on the hour, every hour, the building will light up between sunset and 2 am ET. 

"Just as the world defines the New York City skyline by our famous silhouette, our iconic tower lights are the globally recognized icon of the New York City skyline at night," said Anthony E. Malkin, Chairman and CEO of Empire State Realty Trust in a press release.

 "We are excited to unveil the new sparkle effect which will permanently enhance the New York skyline." 

Along with serving as a compass for the city, visitors and locals alike will be able to look up to the tower to tell the time. 

The illumination is similar to one at the Eiffel Tower, which also turns on its "diamond" fairy lights for five minutes on the hour, every hour after nightfall until 1 am. 

The official hashtag for sharing photos of the illuminations on the Empire State building is #ESBsparkle.
