The mayor of New York City is admitting it probably wasn’t the best idea to light up the Empire State Building in Eagles colors on Sunday — saying Monday, “That got away from us.”
The building rocked green and white at its top following Philadelphia’s NFC Championship win over the San Francisco 49ers … and it was immediately met with a ton of backlash, considering the Eagles are one of the New York Giants’ biggest rivals.

To make matters worse for bitter backers of the G-Men, officials wrote on the building’s social media page, “Fly @Eagles Fly!”
When Mayor Eric Adams was asked about it all during an appearance on “CNN This Morning” … he made it clear he was not exactly thrilled that it happened.
“Unfortunately,” he said, “someone did not get the memo at the Empire State Building.”
Adams said the building — which shifted its lights to Chiefs colors after K.C.’s AFC Championship win over the Bengals — should have featured Giants shades following the games.
“That blue should have been there,” he said.
No word yet on who exactly was responsible for it all — but check out the Empire State Building’s reaction to Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy‘s criticism … an apology doesn’t seem to be coming at all.
