Great city! I went there for a week in 1991 and enjoyed every moment of it. My favourite - the Chicago river trip. A cruise amongst the skyscrapers - beats the Grand Canal any day! Thanks for posting.

Thanks, guys! The Chicago river architecture cruise was incredible and the skyline shots you get from U.S. Cellular Field are great as well. The night pictures turned out really good, I thought. Having an upgrading camera definitely helps!

Here is the second part of my fifth and final day in the Windy City during my Midwest U.S. trip in the Summer of 2013! This part of the Chicago trip focuses on the Hyde Park neighbourhood in Chicago's south side. Hyde Park is one of Chicago's most diverse neighbourhoods. It is home to, of note, the University of Chicago, the Robie House (a Frank Lloyd Wright designed landmark) and the Museum of Science and Industry.

The population of the neighbourhood is currently around 25,000.

Started on 53rd street, this is the new Harper Court Building

Hyde park looks really buzzy!

I think this thread would benefit from far fewer pictures on each post - as it takes quite some time to download!

These tree-lined streets make Hyde Park a wonderful neighbourhood, IMHO… this very much resembles the urban places of my city, London, Ontario…

I really miss my old neighborhoods of Lincoln Park/Lakeview. I didn't get to visit Chicago this summer, so thank you, Jaybird, for the beautiful neighborhood pictures.
