You can't tell very well in the picture, but the West skyscraper at Lincoln Tower today had six ropes hanging from the top edge, some thirty stories up, all the way to the ground. Abandoned window washers' equipment sat next to a pillar outside. First a security guard, then a grounds person for the building came to take care of them after about 20 minutes. Standing at the bottom, looking up on this windy day, it was surprisingly peaceful to watch them sway and twist and float in the updraft.
Reminds me of a commercial I saw recently.
P.S. The Blue Angels were awesome.
