Ok.............In Australia I visited the top of the AMP, Sydney in 1963...the tallest building in Australia at the time.Living in Melbourne I often found my way into buildings under construction...or newly completed...not the security of today ! But climbing 40 floors of stairs was hard,
In Melbourne I have visted the observation deck of the Rialto.....Australia's tallest office tower since the 80's. Then went to the observation deck of the Eureka Tower......our tallest residential tower....and the world's tallest.....Yep, Q1 in Queensland had a big stick on top.
Back in 2000 at last went to the observation decks of the Sears Tower and Hancock Towers in Chicago.....Then the Empire State deck and WTC observation and roof decks in New York.....now a lasting memory ! Then to Europe....went into the Docklands tower in London...not the top....The Berlin Tower....you know the ball on the spike. The back in 2007 went up to the top of the Carrew Tower? in Cincinnati........amazed there was no guard rails up there ? Back in New York finally got to the top of the mast of the Empire State Building..........the Top of the Rock, NY. went into the lobby of the Chrysler and Flatiron NY...and the Tallest building in LA...who needs an observation deck there ? love LA but can't see that far....and that pyramid shaped building in SF......Now there are lots taller in Asia and the middle east but I have enjoyed the wonder of my childhood fantasies.
