A Baltimore Eiffel Tower?

November 18, 2010

Oh please! Please tell me that Baltimore's version of the Eiffel Tower is just a post-Halloween trick ("Baltimore's own Eiffel Tower? Nov. 18). It will not do for the city "what the Arch does in St. Louis," as the developer stated. The Arch is a graceful, dignified welcoming point to the West. This proposed sculpture, on the other hand calls to mind crossed swords, and broken ones at that. I cannot see it comparing favorably with Paris and St. Louis. The Male-Female monstrosity at Penn Station, maybe.
