It's been there for many years. I'm not sure what it means but it's a Niles staple.

It is the YMCA is right behind it think it has something to do with that. I think the Y is called the Leaning tower Ymca....Been there since I was a kid.

The funny thing is Hale and I went past it a few weeks ago and he asked me the same thing...lol

From I remember from my cousins ex husband...the rooms are like for those people who have no where else to stay and really can't afford a hotel room.

they use to let people up there but in the early 90's they stoped because it became unsafe.

Niles is such a strange community and this leaning tower just makes it even more peculair. It feels so stuck in the past because all the homes and buildings have the same exact architecual styling cues. I've never seen so much limestone clad stuctures before seeing Niles. Then theres those strange manicured bushes and goofy lawn ornaments in front of every house....the town really creeps me out. It feels like a Steven King novel in the making............
