NEW YORK (WABC) -- Landmarks across New York state will shine blue and gold Sunday night in honor of New Yorkers' work to flatten the curve of COVID-19.

"Forget flattening the curve of the virus - we bent the curve - and New Yorkers should be proud of their accomplishment. In light of that, we are going to highlight the landmarks across the state in blue and gold in honor of our New Yorkers."
