The old John Hancock Building is a point of interest. You'll see its lighted top at night; the different colors indicate current weather conditions. The local poem goes, "Steady blue, clear view; Flashing blue, clouds due. Steady red, rain ahead; Flashing red, snow instead."
As of September 14, 2001, the John Hancock Observatory is no longer open to the public.
