I'm glad you chose this subject - I used to walk through here frequently on my lunch hour, when I worked Downtown. It's a fabulous place for people-watching - very nicely captured!

If this were a boat they would be in danger of capsizing. Wonder why everyone is on one side of the hall?

@Ralph Jones: Gallery and banquet space is off to the left, while off to the right are entrances from Canal Street and the concourse leading to the commuter trains (Metra and Amtrak); both to be seen later this week.
