This week’s best post award goes to the Rooftop of 77 Water Street, New York City. Thanks to ‘Shep’ for telling us about it.
On the top of this building, there is a Bi-plane, complete with landing strip!
Surely a plane couldn’t possibly land on such a small runway? Wouldn’t it be dangerous?
Well, that’s the point. It isn’t a real plane - it’s a full size replica of a Sopwith Camel, a British plane used in the First World War (WWI). The model was designed in the late 60’s and was added to the building to ‘amuse’ residents of other, taller skyscrapers nearby like the WTC.
Have a look on Google for ‘77 Water Street’, or ‘plane on roof New York’ - there is loads about it on the web.
