    Putting in see through ledges that give you the feeling of stepping off the building 103 floors in the air.

    Just saw the NBC Nightly News report on this and it looks AWESOME. I'd love to be out there.

    Though, the reporter said it can hold up to 8 adults. I'm not sure I'd want to be out on the ledge with 7 other adults.

    A guy on the radio was lamenting how you can't do the Ferris Bueller face-on-glass-looking-down thing anymore with these ledges.

    Freaked me out just being up there. The Hancock building is another fun building to visit.

    And it has nothing on this, from the SKY Tower in downtown Auckland, the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere.


    Didn't do this when I was there last fall, but it was a trip to watch.

    I walked on the glass bridge over the Grand Canyon a couple of years ago. Pretty wicked, but also pretty cool.

    Is it because of the bar at the top? :)

    Last time I was in Toronto, the CN Tower has same deal with a glass floor you can look down from. It's impressive, though the 5-year-old kid jumping up and down on the glass next to you can be a little unnerving.

    Not one chance in hell. Just the pictures make me nervous.

    Same here. That picture at the top was enough to make my stomach turn.
