Nice. In the second picture I can see tower cranes for 5 different buildings under-construction!

Be careful what you believe from the tour guides in Chicago. I've heard them tell some real whoppers when I take tours with people I have visiting from out of town. Just a couple of months ago I heard one tell his group that the Wrigley Building and Wrigley Field have the same name because they're both owned by the Wrigley chewing gum company and that the gum company owns the Chicago Tribune. Many falsehoods there.

I'm sure there are lots of excellent tour guides in Chicago. The boat guides seem better informed than the bus guides. But Chicago doesn't have the rigorous training and licensing that most international tourist destinations do.
When I went on a tour they refered to 300 N. LaSalle as 600 N. LaSalle... It was a minor mistake but still noticable to somebody who visits these forums!

I think it was something like Wendell, but I'm not 100% sure if that was the name.
