Say What!!???

Sears Tower unveils 103rd floor glass balconies --associated press story

CHICAGO – Visitors to the Sears Tower's new glass balconies all seem to agree: The first step is the hardest.
The balconies are suspended 1,353 feet in the air and jut out four feet from the building's 103rd floor Skydeck. Their transparent walls, floor and ceiling leave visitors with the impression they're floating over the city...

Just call me chicken! I have a hard enough time looking out the tenth floor windows with wood, cement and carpet beneath me...climb out into a glass box 103 floors above Chicago....

I'll pass.


  1. Wow! I didn't know that about the Sears Tower.

    Long ago, I got sick at the top of the arch in St. Louis.

    There's a transparent horseshoe-shaped extension over the Grand Canyon. I forget where, exactly. If I were going out on a clear limb, I'd rather it be that one.

  2. Oh no, sick at the top of the arch...that stinks!

    For me, all of those types of things are great to look at from good old terra firma! ;)
