It's a-half world away from Beijing -- but a New York landmark now has an Olympic glow.

The Empire State Building is showing the Olympic colors.

The tops of each of the four sides of building are being lit in the colors of the biggest 66 competing countries.

It's a first for iconic skyscraper.

Last night, the Empire State Building was lit in the colors of Cuba, Sloveneia, Ukraine, and Spain.

The first and last nights of the games, the landmark glows in the colors of the U.S. and Olympic host, China.
