Old and really old

Really old: The house is what's known as the Lincoln Colored Home, or sometimes the Old Colored Home. The article I linked to refers to it as dilapidated back in the day. Although it's been vacant for years and needs a lot of work, a hundred years later it doesn't look very dilapidated to me. Maybe there was another one and it got rebuilt. Not sure.

Old: That white cylindrical thing to the right is Springfield's Hilton, formerly known as the Forum 30 (or was it Forum XXX - lol - okay it's got 30 floors). After a few years of having no restaurant or bar at the top, they're going to open a restaurant up there this fall. And they're taking suggestions for names. All I can think of is Top of the Cock, but that's probably taken. Oh, and inappropriate. (Old because it's over 30 years old. I think.)
