Cleveland Ohio's Terminal Tower, at 708 feet tall, is the 2nd tallest building in Cleveland behind Key Tower. But it is usually the first skyscraper some people associate with the city of Cleveland when the subject of architecture comes up. It all depends on your architectural preference: Height, or History. A staple of Public Square since 1928, it was the 4th tallest building in the world upon it's completion. Only 3 buildings in New York City surpassed it's height. Much like the Empire State Building, the top of the Terminal Tower is lit up at night, often in recognition of various holidays. The Tower can be seen in scenes from The Avengers, A Christmas Story, Spider-Man 3, & the Deer Hunter.

Random Fact:

On August 20, 1938, Cleveland Indians players Hank Helf, and Frankie Pytlak, successfully caught balls dropped from the tower by Indian's third baseman Ken Keltner. The 708 foot drop broke the previous record of 555 ft set by Washington Senators catcher Gabby Street at the Washington Monument. The balls were estimated to be traveling at 138 mph when caught.
