A View From The Air



A view of Fourth Street and downtown Baton Rouge from the Observation Deck on the 27th floor of the State Capitol. On a clear, sunny day, you can see for miles - best view of Baton Rouge!

In the front, the two buildings with circular drives are the Louisiana State Museum (on the left) and the Louisiana State Library (on the right). The four buildings behind them, Galvez, Bienville, Iberville, and LaSalle, are part of Capitol Park and house various departments of state government. The steeple peeking behind Bienville Building is the top of St Joseph's Cathedral. The tan buildings on the rear left are the Chase Towers, and the black glass building on the rear right is One American Place. In the distance are the dome of the Maravich Assembly Center and upper stands of Tiger Stadium at LSU.

Tara, I was just in the building on the left the other day, The new Louisiana Museum, Fourth Street. Wish I would have thought about going to the top of the Capitol. Good shot.
