Climb Atop the Smith Tower For the Changing of the Flag

You've either stared at the tippy-top of Seattle's iconic Smith Tower and wondered what it would be like to stand up there or you haven't. For those who haven't, you probably want to skip this video. For those who have, get ready to find out. Unico Properties, who owns the Smith Tower, recently uploaded a GoPro video featuring chief engineer Cory Jackson (and trusty assistant Moses) as he changes the American flag at the very top. You might notice that Jackson starts out in a cozy-looking room before ascending up the ladder. That would be penthouse where the very lucky Franklin family lives. As you probably guessed and now know, it's one hell of a view up there. Wanna give it a go?
