  1. The Space Needle was built in 1959 for the World’s Fair in 1962. It wasn’t meant to be a permeant. The CN Tower was built in 1973 as a permeant structure. You could use gloves to put gum on the gum wall. I don’t know if you wanted a view of the City and Lake Washington, but you should have gone to the top of the Columbia Tower and had a drink. It has a magnificent view.
