Cincinnati: To the top at Queen City Square's tiara

A while back, I was given permission to access Queen City Square to photograph the tiara and other construction developments on the city's tallest structure. The first trip had to be postponed midway through because of high winds, but the second trip proved to be more fruitful. I was able to ride the exterior elevator to the top and climb scaffolding for these photographs, which provide a unique view of the skyscraper and downtown. It will be even more impressive when the tower is complete.

Enjoy these photographs!

I am normally very much afraid of heights, but for some reason, riding up on the exterior construction elevator and climbing scaffolding had no effect on me.

Note the workers below who are attempting to align a piece of the tiara into place, so that it could be bolted and secured.

And it's the Great American Ballpark. I remember coming to Cincinnati two years and praising one of the best names for a ballpark. "Look! We have the Great American, Bill Cunningham, in this great American city. And we have the Great American ballpark!" Then I realized it was an insurance company!

It's a team effort to guide the tiara into place, inch by inch, so it can be secured.

Workers pause shortly after threading a bolt and nut to hold a tiara component together.

A job well done.
