That's cool, I think that's what makes Chicago, and of course, many other America cities what they are today. When you begin to forget or destroy your traditions and customs then you simply destroy what makes you..you.

I love it when Cities do this with their skylines for special celebrations!

Too bad TrumpTower didn't "participate" more actively.

If I'm not mistaken, it is privately funded. I did hear that it is getting more expensive...

American cities are relatively so young -- they need more traditions, and this isn't that bad.

The Willis Tower? What you talkin' bout??

That's awful! (and I can't believe this thread has gone a five days, and I'm the first one to break out the Diff'rent Strokes reference..)
