The Maine Bank and Trust building built 1909. It's one of the tallest buildings in Maine at only 130 feet to the roof. The actually front has a really nice facade:



and then things get pretty awkward...

I quite like the Folk Art Towers in Izmir, Turkey (previous page). Sometimes one person's skysore is another person's skybeauty.

Niagara Falls seems to have a lot of tacky buildings.

But it wouldn't look like a chair from other angles.

I don't get why strata tower gets so much hate. It's one of my favorite buildings in London.

All skyscrapers with pyramid on their tops are extremely ugly and need to have the pyramid removed to be tolerable.

I don't think these buildings are big eye sores. Well, only the "Big Ben" looking building. That is, I think, Dubai's biggest eyesore!!! That tower belongs in Las Vegas or Macau!
