The new windows seem to be a bit too dark, don't you think?
I expect all they're doing is replacing all the rusty, grimy old sliding glass doors and windows. The only reason the lower floors look so dark is because the drapes have been taken off so if you put the drapes back, i'll bet it would look just the same. Conversely, if you took all the drapes out, the whole building would look darker. I expect the biggest difference will be the new paint, but even that won't change it's looks much.
I'm sure one of you shutterbugs (which is probably a misnomer now with digital cameras) can stagger down and get a shot of the Falls and post it on that thread, and while you're at it get a shot of how the Executive House looks these days.
I would but i'm 2500 miles away!
