Nicely framed as you come up the ramp from Lower LSD to Upper Wacker at the river.

the floor right before the last setback has much higher ceilings, is it maybe a ballroom?

This building, and then the Spire.
Why does Chicago get all the good stuff?!

Definitely Trump's finest.

Jan 02

Needed a new brake cable, went to SportMart ( 620 N LaSalle ), no luck, I remembered the closest bike shop was Villiage Cycle 1337 N Wells ( they had it), on the way back snapped some pictures, got this one of Trump from Ontario. Now when straightening it what do I notice, Kozys has a shop on Erie ( just a block from SportMart ).

That's for sure. An extreme example would be Toronto ending up with a 257 metre tall piece of shit in a cheesy location (financial district)

Well, I wouldn't say it's a piece of shit. It's quite nice.

But yeh, SHIT location. Also right at the back so it isn't viewable from the lake.
