That's what I always thought about the Sears Tower, coming in from the West Side. I'm sure I'm not alone. "City of Big Shoulders," you get my drift.

Anyway, you're right that there is some "local vocabulary" in use and a dialog starting here, and I love that stuff. The Sears Tower and Bankers' Building always did that for me in the same way, when seen from Federal Plaza.
