Ever wonder what it looks like from a high floor of Riley Towers Apartments ( North Taller Building)? What a view!

    I love that building! We used to drive by it on the way to Grandma’s house and we always called it the birdcage!

    I lived in all three towers at the Riley Towers. I lived in a studio in Tower 3, which is the building farthest to the north. It was on the tenth floor looking to the west. I then moved to Tower 2 (the photo in this post is taken from Tower 2), Apartment 901 to be exact, which had a southwest view. Tower 1 obstructed my view of downtown, so I moved to Tower 1 (building farthest to the south). My south, west and southwest views (porch on the southwest) from the sixteenth floor of Tower 1 were lovely. I miss the Riley Towers.

    Very good! The brother of my God Father (Jess Zilson), Nick Zilson, used to won the successor to the Saint Moritz Restaurant downtown on North Pennsylvania. He moved it to Riley Towers in the “seventies” or “eighties” when a new development was undertaken on North Penn (west side), between Washington and Market Streets. Just trivia!
