Chicaaago

For some strange reason, I decided to go out and take some pics during the heat wave last week... Enjoy.





































































































Chicago has ugly high-rises too...












(zoomed in, that's some really great and diverse architecture right there)

Very nice. Seems kind of quiet on the street that day for Chicago though.

Cool looking McDonadls.

Doesn't look like its an actual 50's era building, more like a new retro version.

Cool pics.

Chicago is probably my favourite US city. It has the big city feel of New York, but with it's own unique character.

Also, IMO, it has the best architecture of all US cities:- Tribune Tower, the Wrigley Building, Chicago Water Tower, Marina City, the John Hancock Center and Sears Tower (even if my favourite US building is the Chrysler Building!).

There are some great pictures here. Have you got any decent pics of Marina City? I love those buildings!
