Nice photos!

When was the feature added at the top of the smokey glass tower in the middle of this cluster of buildings in this one?:

I've noticed in some older photos of Houston that it wasn't there. At least I think I've noticed that. In this photo that you posted in the PotD thread, for example:

The building that you asked about is Centerpoint Energy Plaza. It is 47 floors and 741 feet tall. The top of it was added in 1996 and added 90 feet to the building. In my opinion, it definately looks cooler, especially with the hole in the top. When they renovated it they also reconstructed the base and added granite paneling.

Cool! Thanks for the 411, Greens! !

"crunk" means get pumped up. like you're getting ready to fight or get rowdy. some people say it means "crazy drunk", others say it is the past-tense of the word crank. like cranked up? and then still others think it is just a made up word by southern rappers.

^All of those skyline shots are great!

I really love Houston's skyline, it's my 3rd favorite in the country.
