Well, look who’s decided to come loom over York Restoration’s walk

Empire State looming

Why, it’s the Empire State Building! In all its loomy glory.

York Restoration Corporation hasn’t scaled this fine building in years. Not since 1999 has York set foot in its lovely lobby. Or stood in its express elevator to the observation deck, where one of the only unobstructed views of Manhattan can be found.

It’s certainly worth a revisiting, that’s for sure, but what is it about time that makes big, important things seem hard or difficult? York could watch a movie tonight, or do the dishes, flip through cable, go to the gym, or work late. Feh! Shouldn’t York continue doing, at least occasionally, the things that make New York so wonderful? Even if they’re “touristy.”

Every now and again, it’s nice to experience first-hand some of the things that make NYC so unique.

York’s Restoration Corporation + Restoring Earth!

Building restoration experts and Earth restoration experts are teaming up to raise awareness about Earth Day, and more specifically – Earth Hour!

The hope is that by showing how a little change – by doing something as simple as being aware and turning off non-essential lighting when it’s not needed – we can save hundreds of thousands of KwH every day! And that means less burning of fossil fuels, less waste, less of everything that makes pollution, greed, and death in the world.

Vietnam electricity demand fell 500,000 kWh during Earth Hour 2010, which was three times larger than the first time the country joined the event in 2009. Toronto experienced a 15% decline in usage in 2009. It’s amazing!

Well done, everyone! Building restoration experts are natural conservationalists. I’m gonna go flex my muscles in a mirror (with the lights off, of course!)
