Wrigley's red/green crown is much classier than the former practice of bathing the entire building in green light...

Please, Mr. Ambulance driver...




Gold Coast...




The Clare is back there...


That Great Street...


Blah 37...




Witty...


300 N. LaSalle...


Stay-Unbuilt Suites


McDonald Trump...


Heading south down LaSalle...


Toward the Board of Trade...


Where's the Joker's 18-wheeler?


Bonus daytime pics killing time before my delayed flight...

Shure-ly you can't be serious...


Newish residential building on Peterson...


Hollywood...




Lincoln Park...


Heading south on Clark...

Great set. Many of these photos have such a cool gloomy vibe--very atmospheric. And Dark Knight-esque, too.
