It was built for the 1962 World's Fair. It has a rotating SkyCity restaurant at 500 feet. The downtown skyline, Olympic and Cascade Mountains, Mount Rainier, Mount Baker, Elliott Bay and surrounding islands can be viewed from the top. I took this photograph from Kerry Park, approximately a mile north-west of the Needle.

Sunrise, Pier 66, Seattle, Washington, America - I took this photo from the viewpoint at Bell Harbor International Conference Center, near Bell Street Pedestrian Bridge, looking out over Bell Harbour Marina and along Alaska Way road. The image was created from a series of vertical bracketed shots merged into a very large panoramic, doing this keeps the buildings upright, not leaning over at the edges of the frame.
