NOTES: I took pictures 2,3,5 of the previous series. The Morman Tabernacle and the CN
Tower were scanned off of post cards as they presented a much better picture
than I had.
And speaking of towers, over the years I have been on a number of structures
that are higher than 1000 feet. At the present, only 24 building in the world
have this distinction, although approximately that many more are in the works
(either in progress or in the planning stages.)
I have no idea how many other structures top the 1000 feet mark. But they
include freestanding structures (such as towers with observation decks and
used for TV antennas) and anchored TV antenna towers.
The ones I have been in/on are:
* Tallest freestanding structure in the world
|Sears Tower - Chicago||1453 feet
|Empire State Building - NY||1250 feet
|Hancock Building - Chicago||1128 feet
|CN Tower - Toronto, Canada *||1815 feet
|Stratosphere Tower - Las Vegas||1148 feet
|Eiffel Tower - Paris||1052 feet
With the observation deck at 1445 feet
With due respect to September 11, 2001, I never had the opportunity to visit the World Trade Center Towers.
For all kinds of information on tall buildings, see
This is a picture of the glass floor in the CN Tower
observation deck 1122 feet above the ground. Try a walk on it if you dare.
This was taken on Venice Beach (LA/Hollywood area)
during a filming.
On the clacker-board is written 'BAYWATCH'. Several of the Baywatch girls were to
the right of this picture, but none that I recognized. I saw another movie scene
being shot, and two others being set up for later shooting that day.
