"The tallest indoor waterfall, which measures 34.75 m (114 ft) in height and is backed by 840-sq m (9,000-sq ft) of marble, is situated in the lobby of the International Center in Detroit? (According to the Guinness Book of World Records.)"

The International Center on the corner of John R & Kirby? Where in there? (I've only been in the auditorium part and the rooms right near it).

That place is really cool, but didn't the Compuware HQ steal that distinction?

I've noticed that the waterfall in Fishbones has been bone dry for a couple months now. Does anyone know why? At first we thought maybe cleaning or repairs, but it has been quite some time now and we never see anyone working on it.

They couldn't handle the suburban water tax hike at their sister store, so they shut off the fountain in protest!
