i was sad to see the lights beaming up into the sky from ground zero while i was on my way into work last night.

the new building isn't anywhere near as cool as the old twin towers.

and i agree with the folks in chicago. just because there's a giant spike on the roof doesn't make it taller.

that would be like a short guy around 5'8" or 5'9" spiking up their hair with gel and saying they're 6' tall.

I'm from the "Land of Pleasant Living" K- girl.

Born a Baltimoron and now live south of the big city.

Here are a couple of pics of my home in the winter.
And remember if you hop in your car and head this way we have crabs in the summer and you're welcome to join us in that delicacy.

bucky, I can just imagine... My daughter and her family are going to NYC the first week of October, and I'm sure they will go visit ground zero again.

Zagut....I love your home, and all that snow! Beautiful pics.

Beautiful Zagut!
Dear BIL & SIL lived in West Friendship, outside of Charm City for many years ... loved it when we would visit and have a bushel of crabs!
BIL made a point of taking us all around, just to eat.
Fells Point and Little Italy, WOW!
Then we spent several family get-togethers renting a house in Ocean City, MD too, FUN!

Here is the town that I've called home for 18 years now. This place has really grown on me.

Wasn't there some rivalry between the Chrysler Building and the Empire State building about which was going to be the higher and they stuck a spire on one of them to make it a higher building?

I may have that completely wrong

EDIT:- Partly wrong. I've looked it up and it was the Chrysler Building and No 40 Wall Street

yes, but there's been a quiet rivalry between the new freedom tower and the sears/willis tower in chicago.

to me, a building is as tall as it's roof; not something sticking upwards where only crazy people venture.

the latter is for mountain climbers.

To balance out Bake Chef's downtown NC, here's where I used to live near Charlotte, NC, in the Fall.
