The Eiffel Tower gets a glass floor

The Eiffel Tower was Erected in 1889 for the World Fair.  The iron-lattice tower is the world's most-visited paying attraction.

The millions of tourists who flock to the Eiffel Tower will be treated to a new glass floor, creating a sensation of walking on air nearly 200 feet above ground. The $37.5 million reconstruction is likely to become a prime location for “selfies,” with the first visitors spending time on the floor turning their phones towards themselves and the glass floor below. --Thea Breite
