What people are saying:

The San Antonio Life Insurance Building is a landmark historic building in downtown San Antonio, Texas. The 31-story building is 123 meters high. The building opened in 1929 and was originally called the Smith Young Tower. The Smith brothers purchased the building in 1943. In 1953, a television transmission tower was added to the structure. The 2010 renovation removed the outdated TV mast and replaced it with the original design of the tower, which is a copper roof with a 100-foot-high flagpole.

    Old Skyscraper

    This is maybe the most iconic skyscraper downtown, it's historic and has old style. You will notice it and should walk around it to observe the old downtown.

    A room with a view

    I haven’t visited this building inside nor from the tower that you can observe. But the view from the outside is spectacular. I may need to go this week to check it out
