It's been 50 years since Ford built the world-renowned 1965 Mustang and placed it high above Manhattan on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building. Last night, Ford came back with a bigger, yellower, all around more complicated car from 2015 and decided to recreate the famous stunt as a 50-year homage—only this time, they did it in the snow and over the course of just 5 hours.

That's right: the New York Auto Show has just kicked off, and there is a 2015 Ford Mustang at the top of the Empire State Building. Gizmodo was on hand to watch it happen. Here are our pics.
