water tower?


please click on photo to see tower up close



does anyone know what this is? I am guessing it's a water tower but I don't know for sure. it doesn't look like most of the other water towers on long island, but what else could it be? I took my car to get serviced yesterday morning and found this standing right outside the shop. so, what do you think it is?

I never saw water towers in California but when I lived in Texas they were everywhere so now i'm an expert. :-p
I guess it just got restored too.
This is from 2008

Plant 1 on Adams Avenue is currently
offline and undergoing an extensive
$1.5 million repainting and restoration

This looks like the châteaux de l'eau in France... ;-)

So I guess it's a water tower after all. Love the photos of the flowers and pots in the garden.

It does look like a water tower to me - much like those in our town. I don't care much for them. I like the old fashioned kind.

Hmm... Interesting. My guess is water tower, too.

It´s a watertower all right. I was lost in that page for a while as I read about it. Fascinating stuff about something I would not read otherwise.

Nice silhouette against the azure sky!

I thought it was a water tower at first glance. You've reminded me that I need to get my car serviced soon. Ugh.

A water tower is my best and only guess. Nice picture of it, anyway.
