The Tribune Tower, a lovely neo-gothic skyscraper from the 1920's is still gorgeous, and distinctive – as much today, as it was, when built, on N Michigan Ave, just across the Chicago River from the famed “Loop.” On this April morning, I had the opportunity...More

Right across the street from the Wrigley Building is this classic architectural marvel. Part skyscraper, part cathedral. And speaking of cathedral, take a walk around the base and check out all of the embedded stones, etc. from various famous buildings around the world. You can't...More

We saw this historic building while on the sunset architectural river tour. A neo-gothic skyscraper that was completed in 1925, it is impressive. It houses, among other entities, WGN radio which I used to listen to at night in the 1970's (in northwestern Wisconsin). If...More

This is a controversial building. Some people think it is a monstrosity. I think it's just different and definitely worth a visit to inside and out. The lobby contains many quotes, reminding us of the power and necessity for a free press. It's a well...More

The Tribune Tower is an incredible example of Chicago's Neo-Gothic architecture. I overheard that the tower no longer houses the offices of the Chicago Tribune and is undergoing renovations to turn the building into condos. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the building are the...More

Visually stunning and the rocks from different buildings around the world can keep you standing there taking pictures for a good 10-15 minutes. Really interesting building and a must see for tourists.

The Trib Tower is a beautiful tower in the heart of Chicago. It is quite beautiful, especially on a bright blue and cloudless day. The Tower is worth seeing from several angles -- River Walk east and west, and Michigan Avenue, north and south. It...More

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
