  • Nestled beyond an illusion of grey parking lots and uninspiring trees lies a true beauty. It communicates to the senses as a spiritual experience; relaying centuries of history, memories and borrowed nostalgia. Affording unrivaled views of a vast landscape where God's own creations gently touch those of his best creation's. Experiencing the view here carries a responsibility to in turn bring an iota of the beauty beheld into your own world.
  • Very scenic spot. Imagine the building standing here. Awesome.
