Dozens of buildings and landmarks across New York City dimmed their lights Tuesday night to honor NYPD Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, who were shot and killed Saturday.

The lights were dimmed on the tree at Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and many other landmarks. Mayor Bill de Blasio asked for the demonstration, saying "our city is in pain."

The lights remained dimmed for five minutes beginning at 9 p.m.
