Great shot of the Astor Column. Did you climb the stairs to the top? There is a spectacular view from up there, but it is a strenuous stair climb.

I am wondering when this shot was taken. The last time I was up there (a couple years ago), the column didn't look that good. Has it been cleaned up and restored or is this an older photo?

Cal,

i was there last summer - early August, if i recall right. they might have just cleaned it, i don't know. i didn't make the climb, unfortunately. i only had time for a brief stop, and there was quite a line to get in, plus my traveling companion didn't want to wait in the car while i went up (she's got a thing about heights... :G), so we just snapped some shots from the parking lot and went on our way.
