This was proposed like 4-5 years ago actually. It's pretty much a vision.

We had one in Rochester. It's closed too. :/

 

Shame...  I am sure some of them are open.. 

 

and some of them are not open to the public... 

 

The one in Chicago is open that is called Skydeck (or The Ledge).. which you see the pic below:

Umm... ok. :laugh:

 

You're both right, but in Dubai they can afford to waste on a whole other level. They can build their own islands for pleasure, where an island didn't exist before, lol. Actually, for the pleasure of the Western rich coming to visit.


TBH, Western societies... Are kinda collapsing. We're too busy killing our futures by killing science and technology off in the classroom, and replacing it with religious nonsense.

Disregarding religion, the only people killing science and technology are the lazy students who can get by in our society without it. Why take math and science if you can just take political science or liberal arts and live well and not have to think hard? I'm not exactly sure who "we're" are, but it's personal choice not to take math and science courses and careers.

I went to Chicago a long time ago... that the tower had revolving restaurant at the top of the tower.  It had an amazing view..   It's closed.

 

I am sure there are more revolving restaurants in some states.

There's one on top of the Mariott hotel in downtown Ottawa and there is/was one on top of what used to be the Delta Hotel on University street in Montreal. Unfortunately for the Montreal one, the entire hotel is being converted into residences for university students, not sure what's going to happen to the restaurant though, if it's going to stay open or not. I worked next to the one in Ottawa for a few years and now I work pretty much across the street from the Montreal one.

Cool..  maybe you can call them and see if that restaurant is open or not....  If so, you can go up with your camera and take day/night shots of the view.. :)
