Trump Tower Light Installation

Toronto Financial District's presidential namesake building at Bay and Adelaide has a LED light installation running up one corner of the green building, continuing onto the tall spire. While it has often been broken the lights are working now and joins the extensive list of Toronto public art.

Created by artist Michael Snow the work is called Lightline. It highlights the tower that no one seemed to want to buy, probably because the building doesn't like our lumber and milk either! You can get a good view of the moving lights while standing in Nathan Phillips Square at City Hall near the reflecting pond and look south across Queen Street (opposite the TORONTO sign).
Besides the occasional falling glass window, the once unstable antenna on the spire and the class action lawsuit the greenish tower is still kind of cool.
