That's the only view you get, at least with removing 1 and 2 and replacing 3 with a hight rise you get the entire square opened up.

Re: Custom House Tower Photo Thread

I don't know about the rest of you, but I consider this building to be my second favorite in the skyline behind the Hancock. Even more like a 1A than necessarily a 2. I hope this thread doesn't die.

Re: Custom House Tower Photo Thread

I just went to the top of this today(!!!) and I left my camera in the car..... But anyway, it turns out that besides 2:00 observation deck entries for $4, they now have 6:00 entries as well for $7.50, or $15 if you want a cocktail with it. So, yeah, that's new.

That's the student (w ID) rate, yes. Normal adult is $15.

I still don't understand why people go to the SkyWalk though instead of Top of the Hub. For the same price (relatively) you can get a delicious sandwich, soup, or drink and get the same view 2 stories higher.

Looks like Custom House used to be filthy at one point
