Something that I noticed about Millennium Park, Grant Park, and Chicago's downtown waterfront is that they've got some great parks by the water, but a lousy waterfront. To an extent, Columbus Drive, and to a greater extent, Lake Shore Drive are barriers. And if you reach the waterfront on the other side of LSD, you get a bike path and then yacht clubs. So in a way, the parks are more like Central Park (with the great streetwall opposite) than a real waterfront park. In having a downtown waterfront, advantage Toronto. Millenium Park has a heavy security presence. Note the security guard on the Segway. Columbus Drive, acts as a bit of a barrier between Millenium Park and Grant Park and closer to the waterfront. Answer to Canada Life? (And the only time I saw metric in the US). I love the use of the view terminus, in this case, the Chicago Board of Trade building. Marshall Field's. Sadly, it's name is changing to Macy's, though the only indication was a close out on Field's brands. The basement cafeteria is a great bargain for good, fresh lunches, and the interior, with the Tiffany Roof, is amazing. Trump rises. Can't get enough of the Wrigley and (especially) Tribune Buildings. http:// Thompson Center, the State of Illinois office building. Daley Plaza/City-County Hall, where they got that Picasso.
