There is supposed to be one going under Blackstone Social at some point.

Not having two plates is probable cause for a traffic stop, but the police have better things to do. If they do ticket you, it's a non-moving violation and $25 plus court costs. I'm sure that a large portion of Corvette owners can pay the fee versus drilling holes to mount front plates. https://sup...

The definition of what constitutes a "skyscraper" is mostly dependent on the location. In Omaha, the newest FNB tower and Woodmen still meet the criteria, but in NYC or Chicago they would just be called high-rise if that. If you created a world-wide definition, now you'd probably have to ...
