This weeks theme is Narrow
This is Toronto’s CN Tower … it’s sometimes mistakenly called “The needle” – as in Seattle’s “Space Needle” – by our American visitors and while it does look a bit like a long, tall narrow needle it’s real name is the CN Tower. CN stands for Canadian National.
Up until September of 2007 it was the tallest free standing structure in the world. I think it’s title has been replaced by another tower called the Burj Dubai which is located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The circular part near the top of the tower holds a restaurant and observation decks. One of the observation areas has a glass floor and let me tell you it’s pretty scary to stand on and look down! The tower is exactly 1815 feet and 5 inches tall. You can get to the top by riding one of the elevators that travel up the outside of the tower, or by climbing many many flights of stairs.
It’s certainly and impressive structure that draws many tourists each year.
