Tallisms: Inspiration Through Tall Buildings

May 23rd, 2013

Recently, I read an inspiring article that the One World Trade Center in New York City finished adding a 408 foot spire making it the tallest building in the western hemisphere and third tallest building in the world. After tragedy struck down the Twin Towers over a decade ago, New York has rebounded to new heights showing the world America’s strength of character and will. We love that giant size evokes emotion and confidence and what better way to demonstrate your character by erecting a tall building or structure. Just think of any tourist destination and we bet there is a tall building there to view. Size does matter.

If you like to travel as much as I do, then it’s good to have a running list of places to go and see on hand. If you are looking for tall inspiration within America, here is a list of the tallest buildings by US state.

Warm Regards,

Jenni
