Interesting indoor spaces around the world
Pettersen says only in recent years has he developed a special appreciation for the indoors. He had ample time to contemplate his new interest "during two sadistically cold weeks last winter when I voluntarily confined myself to the Minneapolis Skyway System as a livability experiment for an article I was working on."
He's since started a list of "singular, practical" indoor spaces (traveloguebookdealforthewin!) of note, including (obviously) Minneapolis' Skyway System ("The largest contiguous skyway system in the world, connecting what may be the largest contiguous indoor space anywhere."); Istanbul's Grand Bazaar; Dubai's Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest structure; NYC's Grand Central Terminal (aka Grand Central Station); St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City, and the Queen Mary 2. Here's to keeping warm indoors this winter.
