Eyewitness News along with many New Yorkers are wearing red clothing Friday, to show their support for the American Heart Association's "National Wear Red Day," to raise awareness about heart disease. Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Frieden says heart disease accounts for 42 percent of all women's deaths in New York City. He says most women can improve and extend their lives by quitting smoking, losing weight and controlling high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Also, the Empire State Building will glow red as part of National Wear Red Day.
