I don't believe that if I took ALL the buildings downtown, and stacked them up I could get over 400'. Guess good ol' Scottville, MI is out of the running .

Sorry, I forgot one in Youngstown. This building is currently home to the Youngstown Metropolitan Housing Authority. But, it used to be the Pick-Ohio Hotel.


And more info about the other buildings I posted pictures of:

Here is one of the Cathedral of Learning in Pburgh. I have so many more of it, and the Gulf Building which is one of my favorites. However, My my Desktop computer is down for the count. I need somebody who knows computers better than me to save my photos of every city I been in, and my college photos, plus my music, or I am going to seriously go crazy.

Completed in 1919, Hartford's Travelers Insurance Company Bldg. was the tallest building in New England until the Prudential Center was built in Boston in 1964 and also one of the tallest in the country outside of NYC and Chicago. The Travelers Tower is 527 feet tall. Photos are provided in the links below.

Houston has two cool looking old school skyscrapers.

Sorry, link doesn't work right. Just type Houston, and 1940 into the maximum age criteria. I was suprised, I thought they wouldn't have anything that old.

The Mapes Hotel was the only historic highrise in Reno. Unfortunately it was torn down in 2002.
