That's a great shot!
The depth in this one is deceptive because it's probably a good 5-6 miles from where it's shot (presumably Cellular Field), all the way to the Hancock building in the back!

To me from this view it seemed like the AON buildings acted like a 90 degree corner in a room. Now with Trump being a tad taller and with its spire it looks like an oversized Christmas with the spire going through the rooms ceiling.

Love it.

NYC is my heart

Chicago is my soul.

I lived & grew up around both megacities, "the city that never sleeps" & "the city with broad shoulders."

These two literally pioneered the skyscrapers business. Every skyscraper city will come after these two "pushing the skyscraper Envelope" pioneers.

What can I say?

Both cities are GREAT.

The best representation of urban enviroment in the world.

I have a question, is Chicago colder than NYC?
