Chicago: Agora Rust and the River at Dusk.

I was in my hometown, Chicago, on business this past June, and lucky enough to have a day off to marvel at downtown's dynamic development.


From the 32nd Floor of the Fairmont Hotel:

















Looking south from North Avenue Beach:





Museum Park and Grant Park:





One Museum Park:







Agora by Magdalena Abakanowicz:











The Columbian:







340 on the Park:





The Tides (Parkview West in the background):





The rest of Lakeshore East:



The Regatta and The Chandler:



Trump:



Parkview West (with 600 N. LSD behind it):



From left to right: Avenue East, 500 N. St. Clair, Fairbanks at Cityfront Plaza, and 600 N. Fairbanks







More Trump:







300 N. Lasalle:





30 W. Oak:



Life's Too Short!

Great shots. I love the Fairmont hotel.

That sculpture garden is really unique. Those things would totally freak out my dogs.

Thanks for sharing.
