No the El (pictured above) turns a few blocks before the tower.

An old freight line went into it, the line was used for papaer delivery to the printing presses that were in the old SunTimes building ( on this site ). The line may be revived as a light rail system. The line continued on between the two towers of the Wrigley building ( that's why there are 2 towers ).

frm Wells


At Clark looking W


At Clark looking E


Under State st Wabash in the background


The subway does not go under it, although some of the old freight tunnels did they have probably been filled in.

Oh hey, I can understand that.

After all, this tower by Donald Trump looks better than any of his New York towers and I have a right not to like it - but of course, I do like it very much.

I never heard this but would not be surprised. He probably wants to top the Chicago Spire.

You said "get shots", not "great shots". If you took a second to look over the broken english in your post, it would help to avoid communication issues.
