A couple of days ago, just READING about something had me in a mini panic attack.
Your honor, Exhibit A:
I’ll never, as long as I live, call it the Willis Tower, ever, ever, ever Sears Tower has already begun some, renovations, shall we say, that will be completed in June. They are taking out four windows on the 103rd floor in order to install glass-bottomed skydecks, so certifiably insane adventurous people (and, obviously, non acrophobes) can feel like they’re “walking on air” over the city.
The attraction will be called The Ledge. A ledge is what folks normally talk others OFF OF, so I find myself wondering if the creators of this “attraction” have a sick sense of humor or what.
Oh yeah, and The Ledge has to be retractable, so the window washing apparatus can get by it. Doesn’t exactly add confidence in my mind.
Read the entire Chicago Sun-Times article about it here. And share your thoughts in the comment box, please!
For the record, I thought that the Grand Canyon Skywalk sounded really cool when they did it…but would I do it myself? Uh, no.
And also for the record? I would not pay to do this. Surprised? I’m not crazy about getting on a tall ladder. Though I was fine on the actual 103rd floor during our last visit to the Sears Tower, I would not like to feel like I’m walking on air OUTSIDE the 103rd floor. No spank you.
