i kinda agree with you....all that space, but the park will be nice...

Every busy urban centers need a open space for workers, tourists, and residents to breathe from their busy daily lives.

There's been weather and webcam issues for the past 2 weeks, so the second half of August isn't pretty.

It would be possible, but it would take a few things I don't currently have.

1. I use Windows Movie Maker and it's currently at the max res for that program. I could use a copy of Adobe Premiere I have, but I don't know the program at all.

2. Once I figured out that, I'd need somewhere else to host it because the file would be huge.

I agree with the other poster..

A roof height of 1776
And a spire height of 2001 will be much more symbolic.
