Any time.  Not to hijack the thread....but this was from yesterday around 5:30, sailing right past where Don's photo was taken (his location would've been about 1/4 mile off to the left).  Our little guy was wanting to take the helm for the first time.  Haha...

He may not be able to see where he's going but at least he's well clear of the boom when tacking and jibbing!

The more I see the Hyatt Place Hotel in downtown Nashville the more I wished they had done one of their other designs.  Like the one in Washington, DC on New York Ave.  To me it would have been much better for downtown Nashville.  The design they chose to put in downtown Nashville is much like the style I've seen in suburban locations or small towns close to a metropolitan.

The problem is that White Lodging did ours and if you look at the ones in Austin and Denver they are the same as ours except different heights.  Ii am glad they did not do the Embassy Suites and 1 Hotel project now. Who knows what a mess we would have ended up with.

It's amazing how much that one, large red Verizon building detracts from this photo.  That's one major eyesore in a really cool downtown.

What’s the deal with it? Think it will get sold anytime soon? I pass by it all the time but am not sure what is in there.

Some kind of "call center" or something?  Not sure what it's used for....but I don't think they're going to move anytime soon.  I actually don't think the building is very old...but it's as ugly as sin.

I think it was built by the original AT&T (as in Ma Bell) to house the very heavy telecommunications equipment back in the days when people still had land line phones and all phone calls were handled by operators.  It's where the operators used to manipulate the giant switchboards.  Think this:

Image result for phone operators

 

GTE, the much smaller competitor to AT&T, had a similar building in downtown Cookeville.  Large and windowless, it housed dozens of telephone operators.  Someone smarter than me can probably explain why these buildings couldn't have windows.

From what I understand it has to do with keeping the temperature stable so that the switching equipment can operate properly.
