As many of you already know, City Hall changes its exterior lighting to pay tribute to sporting events of note (e.g., the San Francisco Giants winning the World Series) or unofficial holidays (like Gay Pride Weekend). The structure's lighting schematics also memorialize those we've lost, most recently turning purple to honor the death of Prince.
Behold San Francisco City Hall shining bright for the Warriors.
Our resplendent Lillian Coit Memorial Tour turned appropriately blue.

And lest it be left out of the playoff piggybacking, the Ferry Building's clock tower turned blue, too.
Oakland City Hall also goes azul for the team.
Also, the Deloitte building at 555 Mission in Yerba Buena has tipped its hat to the Warriors by lighting up its crown with blue and yellow. Be sure to look up if you find yourself walking around downtown this week as night falls.
Last night the Warriors came back from behind to take Game 7 over Thunder, securing an NBA Finals rematch later this week. The Warriors take on Cleveland Heart in the finals starting this Thursday.
