"Spireworks, a much whispered-about free app, allows users to change the colors of the spires atop two of New York’s tallest buildings. The only way to join is to be invited by a current user, so access has spread through an unlikely network of colleagues, friends and denizens of the city’s rooftop bars. Among fans, invites remain a precious commodity, creating a new class of haves and have-nots. The have-nots plead their case on social media, and a black market for invitations has opened up on Craigslist.org and other websites, where they sell for $100 and up. The app owners recently asked Tinder, the dating app, to take down a profile hocking a Spireworks invite for $1,000." Via the Wall Street Journal. Definitely a fun idea, won't be a secret for long 😏

Would really appreciate an invite as I live in NYC and find myself on many a rooftop with a view of these spires. Will repay in free clothing, beer and invites to all future rooftop parties thrown by myself or associates ;)
