Walking On Air Makes the Bears' Defensive Line Look Really Small: Changes at the Sears Tower

The view from the tallest skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere just got better.

Some may experience a floating sensation when stepping into one of four glass boxes that jut out from the indoor observation deck at the Sears Tower.

"At first I was kind of afraid but I got used to it," said Adam Kane, 10, a visitor from Alton, Illinois, as clouds drifted past. "Look at all those tiny things that are usually huge."

"The Ledge," unveiled on Wednesday, invites visitors to step onto a 1-1/2 inch-thick glass floor suspended 1,353 feet in the air.
