Great images. My daughter is currently in Chicago and I'm so excited for her - it looks fantastic.

I cannot agree with the post above; I do not know all U.S cities but I have visited San Francisco and it is vibrant and full of street life. Likewise Seattle.

Perhaps from a Brazilian/South American experience it may seem that way, because in South America urban populations are huge, and many people live in apartments in the central areas of the city, as opposed to suburbs?

American cities have large suburbs, Chicago has extensive sprawl. Our suburbs are dotted with shopping malls, business districts and entertainment which compete with the inner city, in this case downtown Chicago. That is why you don't see as many people on downtown streets. Other cities like those in Latin america and Europe are much compact with less sprawl, I can bet that most entertainment, jobs, etc. is within the city limits. In that case people spend most their time inside or near the cores in those respective places (L.A, Europe).

Chicago also has 29 miles of beautiful lakefront. If you want to see a lot of people in Chicago on a nice day then head to the lakefront or the restaurants. No a lot of people just hang out on the streets, I sure as hell don't. I only use the streets to get to where I'm going.

For a moment there, I didn't recognize the building/location from that angle. Thanks!
