Is an ugly eyesore and why do I have to write 50 characters, it is Ugly says it all, I don't mind doing a review but I don't like that you dictate how much I have to say.

I know it's meant to be an attraction but it's not the building that bothers me, it's more of how the built everything around it. From the jumbled and misplaced parking lots to the ponds/fountains that never seem to be taken care of....

It is quite a sight, driving on the highway then coming upon a giant building that looks like a basket. Unfortunately it has seen better days and the grounds need some upkeep. Sad.....

It is a one of a kind building I like to just pull into the parking lot and admire the work. Everyone who comes to Newark should drive out to the Basket you can see it a long way down the road.

driving past the Longaberger basket is quite a treat. Seeing an office building built in the shape of a picnic basket really catches one's eye. Very unique looking and makes one appreciate architects with vision.

There's nothing to do here, but that's not the point. It's just a cool, old school roadside attraction. Sometimes it's good just to stop and take something in for a moment.

How often do you see a 5-story picnic basket? It was such a cool thing to see driving to Blackhand Gorge.

I drive by this building regularly for work. The building is in need of repair and refurbishing. In particular the finish is peeling off of the handles. From a distance it still looks amazing but upon closer inspection you can see that the building has seen better days. sort of like those once grand southern plantations that fell into disrepair....

Interesting to stop by. Looks more amazing from a distance because you can't tell it's a building. Still pretty awesome.
