Visitor Tips and News About The Red Tower
The Red Tower stands only a few blocks from The White Tower. Both are on the north side of the city, near the corner of Bissell St. and Blair Ave. The photo opportunity is a quick one, as there are not a lot of areas to park off of the circle that The Red Tower stands in.[Chris Harmon, 09/22/2013]
We visited the Red and White Towers in 2012. The Red Tower actually seemed easier to visit than its White companion; less traffic. We struck up a conversation with one of its neighbors, who said that people stop by to snap pictures of The Red Tower all the time.
The Red Tower... Caution of time of day you enter, the neighborhood is not friendly.[Charles Lewis, 06/04/2012]
