NEW YORK (WCBS 880) - Last October, the Port Authority changed the color of the necklace lights on the George Washington Bridge for the first time ever.

They turned them pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

They’ll be doing it again this October.

In November, they’ll be changing the color again. Port Authority spokesman Steve Coleman told WCBS 880’s Evan Bindelglass that this time it will be green for the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts.

The green color was tested on four lights on the northern cable over the weekend.

The necklace lights were off Monday night and will remain off until October 1. Though if you look at the bridge during the day, you’ll be able to see the new color on the light fixtures. A great vantage point is the bridge walkway or the Fort Lee Historic Park.

Do you think that the Girl Scouts deserve this honor? Shouldn’t? Sound off below!
