Time to Turn the Empire State Building… BLUE?!

Sometimes feeling blue can be a good thing! A group of Doctor Who fans in New York City have put forth a modest proposal: to turn the Empire State Building to TARDIS blue in celebration of the show’s 50th anniversary.

The plan is to light up the Big Apple building in brilliant blue on November 23rd. The group of fans–known as NY Sci-Fi & Fantasy–has even started an online petition on They are about two-thirds of the way to their goal of 10,000 signatures. Says the petition:

“This is the first time a SciFi show has lasted 50 years. It’s a landmark occasion. The Doctor has visited NYC many times over the years.”

NY Sci-fi is hoping to get further help from the people who run the Empire State Building and also from Who fans across the world:

“We are attempting to partner with the Empire State Building ( to make this happen. Help show just how popular this show is by signing the petition and sharing the link. Spread the word via Facebook, Twitter, or any way you can! Allons-y!”

So, Kasterborites, why not stop by and sign the petition? It’s a plan so audacious, even the Master himself would be proud!
And while you’re thinking about it, what else should be turned TARDIS blue in order to celebrate the 50th in style?
