Skyscraper Appreciation Day Celebration

Skyscraper Appreciation Day is celebrated on August 10th, the birth date of William Van Alen, the primary architect behind the construction of the Chrysler Building, the most popular skyscraper in New York City.

Skyscraper Appreciation Day was started by Dr. Tom Stevens. It was created so people can appreciate the engineering and architectural marvels we know as skyscrapers, which represent the triumph of reason and of man's industrial nature.

Celebrate Skyscraper Appreiciation Day by doing one or more of the following:

1. Research the history of skyscrapers.

2. Visit an interesting skyscraper near your home.

3. Select photos of your favorite skyscrapers and post them to the "Photos" section of the Skyscraper Appreciation Day Facebook Group at:

4. Visit "The Skyscraper Museum", a private, not-for-profit, educational corporation devoted to the study of highrise buildings, which is located in lower Manhattan.http://www.skyscraper.org/home.htm

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
