View of St. Petersburg, Florida, from “The Pier”

From Wikipedia:
The St. Petersburg Pier, simply called The Pier by locals, is a landmark and major tourist destination in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. Some of the activities and sights it encompasses include fishing, boat rentals, weekly festivals, and the Pier Aquarium. Shopping, dining and nightlife are other amenities.
Besides the attractions it is known for its five-story inverted pyramid shape overlooking Tampa Bay. The aquarium is located on the second floor, with a branch of Ybor City’s famed Columbia Restaurant on the fourth floor and Cha Cha Coconuts Tropical Bar and Grill on the fifth floor. The first floor includes a Concierge Center, specialty shops and galleries, Waterside Grill & Bar, and the Dockside Eatery food court with burgers, pizza, ice cream and Chinese. Local bands are featured in Courtyard by the Bay every Sunday afternoon.
The Pier is due to be demolished and will be closed to the public sometime in the spring of 2013. A new structure is planned, with the winning design called “The Lens” shown in the following link: http://www.stpete.org/pierdesign/
