I think it's fun to point out skyscrapers in your area. How far away can you be, and you can STILL see them or spot them around! What's the history behind the building? I think it's fun! :D
1.) My fave skyscraper, is the tallest one in the Lehigh Valley. It's called the Martin Tower, and it is in Bethlehem. I first mentioned it on the Pennsylvania page. It was a very busy place back when it was used for Bethlehem Steel. Sadly the whole building is now vacant, and has been since 2007. I am hoping soon, someone can buy it and fix it up! I'd love to see it in action again! I love to see it around me, as in pointing it out when I am near Kirkland Village, or anywhere in Bethlehem and I can even see it around depending on where I am in Allentown as well! Some of the pics I post of it will be the top as I can see it from far away.
2.) My 2nd fave is in my own city! It's the PPL building. This one is 8 feet shorter then the Martin Tower. I can see this a LOT too! I love pointing it out! Even today I said to my mom, "Look! Lehigh Valley Mall...PPL BUILDING!" LOL I love to find it around. When it was opened, it had the fastest elevators in the world. ♥_♥ Oh how I love trivia. :P
3.) If the Twin Towers in New York City were still around, they'd be in my faves. But...NO some stupid $#@! HAD to dive right into them. >:|=( WTF WHOA I made a new face by tyopey accident haha :P
Pic I took of the PP&L Building! *o*
Another one a bit closer to the PPL ♥_♥
And now I was standing outside, and looking up and the PP&L Building :D
Picture I took in 2011 of the Martin Tower. ♥_♥ OMG...my fave. LOL it was in the parking lot of CVS I remember and my mom said, "Hey get a pic of Martin Tower!" haha :D GLAD I DID!
A FAILED pic of Martin Tower I actually took before the previous one! :P
My mom made a quick stop in to Big lots yesterday (5-11-13) and she got a new CD Player! I stayed in the car and saw my fave building, zoomed in and there ya have it! LOL :D ♥
My mom & I went to Lowe's which is very close to the Martin Tower. X3
My mom walking to our car, and LOL YAY It's there! :D
*o* Oh goodness me....hehehehehehehehe : D
Oh, ya know...just driving past Wawa. :D
No one is gonna understand why I take so many pics of this building. My mom doesn't even know but she does not mind. :P I have many more then what I uploaded, heh... *o*
*drools* mooom can we drive clooooser??? *o*
YAY! I filled out a job app. at Price Rite today, and the computer I did it on was facing my building. :] So after we did some shopping, I was in the parking lot and I said, "ONE PICTURE!" ahh here it is! :) ♥
OK so my mom was making a right to the end of 8th Avenue...yes MT was riight out the window as you can see hehehe! :D
My mom & I were driving and I said, "OOH PPL!" and she said, "There it is! Loud and proud!" so I took a few pics! [and this was the best one!]
)": I actually said, "NOOOO!" when I took this!! The car was moving too fast! Martin is hidden in the trees but there he is. :")
I dunno what I am gonna think if or when they DO make that supposed skyscarper in Allentown...what is that even gonna be USED for? MAKE MORE USE OF MARTIN! They're trying to outdo Martin and PP&L...weird. o_O
:OOOOOO: OK so this was after the Billy Idol Concert
, and my mom was going to make a right off of the Hill To Hill Bridge, and into Main Street. I did not WANT THAT!! I said, "Can you PLEASE go straight??" I knew it'd take me to 8th Avenue where Martin is! OMG I feel bad for just TELLING her with no explanation, then I said, *gasp* "I MUST get a picture of that! (Acting like I had no idea...lol) And as you can see Martin in the distance! To me, the taller he looks...omg...why must my pictures be SUCH a fail in the dark!! :( But yay omg... *o*
OK so...as I said, "I have to get a picture!!!" my mom said, "Why? It's not even lit up?" >:( 1st of all, it's HE not IT!!!!!!!!!! >:( But I can't tell her that! :l anyways...I said, "So what?? it is at the top!" and she said, "Yeah but that's only for planes." OMG MOM I DO NOT CARE! Why does she not see the connections I have with this building? I can not HELP it! Ahh I... :"( ♥ i suggested to her to pull over one day and let me walk up 8th Ave. and let me take some pictures and she just does not GET it! :l
6-16-13 Martin... *swoons* I took a bunch of pics of him today haha my mom did not care or say a word about it YES! :D
*o* OH MY GOODNESS I am so happy I took these pics!!!!!!!!!!! :D
:OOOOOOOOOOOOO Martin you're so tall and blue! *.*
OH COME ON I HAD TO! LOL Martin, and my moms head, lol while driving haha!
Now I just turned around and took that out the back car window! :D DON'T GO! NO! Why are we driving awaaaaaay. :l NEXT TIME! :D lol
` :") 6-21-13, my mom and I went to Price Rite and I was at the front doors so I took a quick picture of my Boyfriend Of Buildinghood there. :P My mom said, well it was gonna be today but it did not work out, but soon she said she will pull over one day and let me take pictures in Martin's parking lot, in the FRONT of him! Like I can take pictures of him, the Bethlehem Steel logo, ooh I can not wait! :D

*sigh* HOW are these people lucky enough to live THAT close to him? I bet they wouldn't do the things I would if I could see him from...you know what never mind. ;) Point is I wanna live in ONE of those houses! UGH!!! *jealous*
Well this WOULD be a great picture of him, if the TREE was not in the way! Get outta here tree! >:P
8-14-13, The moment...it happened...my mom pulled over and said, "Get out!" and I said, "OKAY!!!" and she laughed. :P My sweet Martin, I finally stand in front of you! How beautiful, tall and blue you're looking today. Oh how I wanted to run RIGHT up to you, but I just can't...not yet.
His sign! Oh how I love it! c: I wanna walk up to you soooo badly. :D I wanna hug you...
Ohh yesh! :3 You see at the bottom of the photo, that chain there? You can't drive into the parking lot that way like you used to be able to. And there's two poles in front of him there that used to have flags on it. Someday, I am going to make sure that gets fixed. I am going to make sure he gets used again. He's just... miine. :D
Awww back in the car again...and you can see reflections in the window inside the car too...my Beautiful Martin again c:
This is pretty, but still you can see reflections from inside the car haha! :P

c: My mom works in a building in Bethlehem, and she took me in today 8-21-13, and she took me to the window and I said, *gasp* *smile* "Martin!" and I took a few pictures of the view from the window! My Martin!!! ♥
Closer of Martin! I said, "I want this view from my bedroom window when I love to Bethlehem!" (Well that is, if I do not move into him right away) c: How can anyone not love a building that looks this perfect? I mean God he's so cute.. :D ... And now I am reading over what i said... "When I love to Bethlehem?" I meant move! That typo is staying haha :D
One last picture out the window. Love you Martin!!!!! :D
Back on the ground again driving...I'm coming my Martin! c:

Oh nooo now you're behind me! NO come baaaack!
O-okaaay. I cannot complain Martin...I seen you a LOT today. Until next time my sweet skyscraper!!!!! :) ♥♥♥
Martin right after I told him on this cloudy day, "Martin...I WILL save you...I don't care what other people say. " And earlier tears were in my eyes and I said to my mom in front of Martin, "I can't see how you could call that building ugly. I can't. I see unique and beauty,"
This is...again...Martin in the perfect spot...while driving! I wish that it was not blurry but COME ON. You have to admit that he looks good in that spot. :)
This is probably the closest that I can see Martin from my house...I love finding new spots to find him. :]
