Seattle Space Needle goes selfie-friendly

 

Seattle's Space Needle is getting an update, including new features for better viewing, and a special feature for selfie fans: new slanted clear-glass benches that allow selfie fans to safely 'fall off the tower.'

The benches are mounted to some of the new 11-foot high glass walls that are replacing the half-wall and wire caging that kept previous generations at the tower safe, but added obstructions to millions of photos.

The new feature, at the 520-foot height on the  605-foot tower, allows visitors to sit on the slanted benches and take selfies that give the impression of being in mid-air over Seattle.

The updates are an add-on to structural updates and repairs on the landmark, built in just 400 days for Seattle's 1962 World's Fair.

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations
