as you ascend

Architecture Spiral staircases everywhere:
"Roosevelt Island is one of those hidden pockets, in the busy city that is still strange, surprising, and filled with bits and pieces of amazing history. While there is more to tell about the island then can be fit here, suffice to say, over the years it served as a prison, quarantine island, gangsters paradise and more. Throughout all this the Octagon remained as did its amazing "flying stairs."
One of my favourite starcases is inside the bell tower at Liverpool Cathedral (and can be seen in the background of this photograph). It's pinned to the wall of the hidden enterior but with the scale of the space that surrounds it, exhilaratingly, as you ascend it's almost as though you're on the outside of a building as the wind currents spinning about.
