Observation Deck @ CLE

Mon Feb 02, 2004 3:18 am

I was just wondering if the obsevation deck at CLE was open. From what I heard, it was closed after Sept. 11th. However there are picutures in here that were taken from the observation deck after 9/11.

I believe the glass enclosed portion is still open, but I don't think you can go outside anymore. I was up there in December, but it was early in the morning (before the old posted opening time for the outdoor deck).

I remember going up there, and outside, many years ago as a kid. That was a great place to watch planes.

I posted a response here, but it seems to have been deleted.

I believe that the glass portion of the deck is still open, but you can no longer go outside. I was there in December and that seemed to be the case. Maybe someone from the area can confirm this.

But didn't they normally close the outside portion during the winter months, so people would not throw snowballs down on aircraft/workers?
