04/11/09 38 W, 1 I - + 12 - 14 Mystery Building


What is it, and where is it? Hint, it's above ground. For extra credit, tell more about the thing. When was it built? How big, tall, or wide is the thing? What's its history?
  





That is the south side of the Wake County Courthouse, looking up from between the Wake County Office Building and the Courthouse, at the skywalk connecting the 6th floor of both buildings.

When was it built? I have no clue. How big, tall, or wide is it? No idea. I do know that walking though it is a great way to drop all cell phone service.

Now, where’s my prize?

So, Mike, even though I didn’t get the extra credit, I got the question right… when can I expect my prize?

ps – i was told we are not allowed to photograph the building (troublemaker that i am)

If Big Brother objected to every photograph of that building, then Google Earth would never have it on their application… I just don’t think they want you walking around it snapping every angle.
