Sin City, it's where famous people go to die,... it seems anything goes in terms of architecture in Vegas.

I'll give you that if you replace the term 'architecture' with... Eurm... 'construction'.

No! I did not say worthless piles of glass, cards, stripers, Poker machines, champagne and concrete!!

It's kind of off topic, but I was driving though Chicago on Lake Shore and I saw a guy in a grey jogging suit pulling a "Rocky" aka jogging, threwing jabs, jumping up and down at odd intervals along the lake. He was really getting into it too...

Back on topic, the Trump Tower is really is a sight to see. I hadn't seen it in person before then and it is really going to be something to behold once its finished, especially from the bridge over the river.

Typical construction site, one guy does the drinking, another one is thinking about it and two supervise.

I really like that picture of the workers on the tower, actually. It really puts things into perspective... that is one massive project.

Not only that but it hasn't even topped out yet but they've found time to put a Starbucks in there.

Great piece of engineering by the way. It's looking better and better as it goes up.

I took these shots yesterday 11/06/07 while I was at the Field Musume at around 11:00 AM. You can see the Trump Tower in the background rising above many buildings. I wanted to show everyone the impact its starting to have on the chicago skyline. Enjoy
