The fat side is the best side. It's great.gotta say -- after doing lots of travel by car and plane the past couple weeks and seeing this bad-boy (fancy gal?) from the north, the familiar CRB view, logan, flight arrivals/departures, and from higher floors of avalon n. station -- i.... kinda even like the "fat" side. the proportions are 100% working imho. what a stunner.
