Best View of Cleveland 

Carl B. Stokes Federal Courthouse

It cost too much to build and makes a scarily inviting terrorist target. But Lord, what views! Shoot up to the 21st floor and drink in downtown in all its blustery winter charm or sparkling summer beauty. Watch snowflakes fall in a hypnotic swirl around skyscrapers and fill up Browns Stadium like a cereal bowl, or behold the August sun reflecting a thousand points of light off Lake Erie. Whatever the season, you'll be happy to see that your tax dollars didn't go completely for naught. And don't worry about being rousted by one of the 14,000 security guards who patrol the place. They're too busy playing computer solitaire to notice you.
