In order to avoid mid-air collisions, aircraft warning lights are attached to tall buildings within the CBD to make the structures more visible to passing aircraft at night. For safety purposes, they are required to be visible for kilometres. You might like to take yourself out to the suburbs to look back on what “the city” had to offer, or you might just head up to the Rooftop Bar, to absorb the urban panorama, get yourself a nice cold drink and to stand amongst the artrepreneurs and the open sky. Josephine Rowe thinks that you could find the skyline here, or here, or here, or somewhere else deep in the recesses of your adolescence.
