Re: OFFICIAL - Embassy Suites (former Federal Reserve)

That base is definitely for a construction elevator, not a crane. The windows have been removed on all floors directly above the base they just poured.

Re: Light Rail Systems And Routes In Other Cities

I will be in Milwaukee this week and plan on riding the street car. One thing I am disappointed is that it does not run by any of the 2 sports arenas. Its about 5/6 blocks away.
