Wow, beautiful pics! Chicago is my favorite US city, I don't know why, but it's just somehow special.

Will the crane be removed before the spire is attached, or will they keep it in place?

The top floor curtain walls will probably be finished by the end of next week so I'm wondering if they'll start dismantling it.
