A kind soul, with a journalistic spirit shared with me some photos taken from the top of the Transamerica Pyramid during a “young professionals mixer.”

If you ever wondered what the view looks from up there, then take a look.

And here are 5 facts about the Transamerica Pyramid that might come in handy at your next cocktail party in the Financial District.

  • Designed by architect William Pereira
  • Built in 1972 (back then it was one of the 5 tallest buildings worldwide)
  • 850 Ft. high
  • 48 floors of office and retail space
  • And a penthouse where parties sometimes take place (invite me to the next one!)
