Even though I'm a Die Hard New Yorker....I have to admit that, IMO, Chicago has the best skyline in the North America. The skyline is just so balanced and that is compounded by the fact that Chicago has really taken advantage of its waterfront. New York may have more buildings than Chicago, but its not always about quantity.....bravo Chicago.

Dinner Trump's Sixteen Restaurant

I had a wonderful dinner at Sixteen - thought I'd share a few photos, just before sunset, of the dining room and the view of two of Chicago's landmarks - Tribune Tower and Wrigley Building.

You got me. Technically, it's only 3 (I photoshoped 1 & 2 together to show more of the dining room). I'll try to be more thorough next time.
