Skyline shot from the IIT/Bronzeville Green Line L station, Sunday 8/3:



(Shot it after going to the Sullivan stencil exhibit at Crown Hall - awesome - today was the last day, though )

The E facing view is gorgeous with the Chicago river, harbor mouth, & Lake Michigan. I can't see it without wondering what it will be like when the Chicago Spire is finished.

I know the Spire won't be black and opaque, but I wonder if the Trump residents/owners will like the view as much once the Spire is there.

What a view!

If Trump is smart, he will double the rent for THAT view!

Yeh, we could use more skyscrapers in Manhattan (I know we're building them every day, just doesn't compare to what Trump is building for Chicago).
