Default North View from CN Tower

The rectangle with the spots on it is the Art Gallery of Ontario. The white dome in the upper center is the old McLaughlin Planetarium attached to the Royal Ontario Museum.

Nice too see all the tree's sprinkled among the buildings

About 15 yrs ago I had the pleasure of working co-op at the Tower and was granted the priviledge of being allowed to walk out on top of the tower's observation levels. All that kept you from going over the edge was a thick rope waist high about 3 feet from the edge. I was amazed but the view was unbelieveable. So too was the fact that on one side of the needle it was calm but the other side was windy. It was neat to stand there with all the media camera's pointing down at the city.

Little known fact too is that the tower is hollow which naturally makes sense so that the structure can stay erect. But, it's interesting to walk inside it up the staircase which is "linked" metal and you can see straight down. Needless to say, I didn't do it Stuck to walking the outside (the public access ones) stairs when needed. On a windy day the tower can sway rather violently which looking up from ground level you wouldn't suspect.

When it was being built my office window looked right at it. One thing I always regret is that at the time I had a Braun Super 8mm movie camera. It could take automatic time lapse film. So leaving the camera on the window sill and plugged into the wall I could have just left the camera on every day and had the whole construction of the tower done in time lapse. There was continuous pouring of concrete which once started never stopped until it was finished. It would have made a nice souvenir. But at the time it was just another building.

That is too bad. It would have been a nice piece of history to have at your disposal. Hind sight is always 20/20 though, eh.
