You are correct, Jeekinz. I worked my butt off years ago climbing it. You're up!

That's the Red Seat at Fenway Park. Section 42, Row 37. Final landing spot of the longest home run ever at Fenway Park, 502 feet, hit by Ted Williams in 1946. The Red Seat commemorates this.

Good job, phinz! (imitating ZZ Top with the arm swirl) "Your turn."

Explorers was my clue (HH was an Eagle Scout). And various brothers also went to PHILMONT, but I don't know if they ever climbed that thing.

OK. This one should be Googlesimple.

What is this? You can give me the current resident or the resident it was built for, or both if you're really clever. Why was it built originally? Where is it?

Correct. You didn't tell what it was built *for,* but that's OK. It was originally built to house Guinness, then became The Vault. It's not occupied by Guinness now, though. It's occupied by the Titanic attraction's ticket office, of all things.
