Cleveland: Downtown: May Company Building

Recommended Posts

This building will dazzle at night with indirect lighting. I just hope they highlight the natural color of the building. I think the colored LED lighting of the Terminal Tower is ugly. Like a kid coloring it in with a crayon. With old buildings highlight the natural color.

Another little detail I hope they revive are the lights at the tops of the vertical posts on the top of the facade. Those used to light up as well.

as an aside, for a trip down memory lane (for really old people like me and anyone interested to know those dept. stores were like) this is a good overview of the May Co., including a store directory. And I had forgotten how many branches there were. Also other great Cleveland and Ohio dept. stores (Lazarus, etc.) are profiled (I still don't understand why my links aren't linking half the time :classic_sad:). (I was surprised to see they had added branches as late as the late 70's--Randall Park and Euclid Square--both malls defunct)
