Happy Monday! As many of us gear up for the work week, we share a photo of the iconic building representing Greensboro's business community. It can be seen from so many vantage points around the city. The 18 story building, Greensboro's skyscraper, is 233 feet tall and, when it was built in 1923, it was the tallest building in North Carolina as well as the tallest building between Washington D.C. and Atlanta. A 20-story addition, the Jefferson-Pilot, now Lincoln Financial, was added in 1990. Actually, it is the 20-story addition that is primarily visible in this photo. The Jefferson Standard side is hidden behind and slightly visible to the right.
The above photo was taken yesterday evening, around 4:30, from the Greensboro College campus. Greensboro College is a perfect vantage point from which to view downtown Greensboro. The slight elevation of the campus affords such a nice view. Now is the time to take advantage of wandering around this beautiful campus while the college students are still away for winter break and parking is not an issue. Hurry! Classes begin on Wednesday.
