Chicago Skyline

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 23 April 2012 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

The Chicago skyline, an area commonly known as the Loop because it is "looped" by elevated train tracks, as seen from the top of the parking garage for Rush Memorial Hospital.

Pictured in the foreground on the left is the Church of the Epiphany at 201 South Ashland Avenue. It was built in 1885 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.

Photo captured April 7, 2012.

The front and the back look like two completely different worlds Steve. I hope that these older districts somehow escape the clutches of the developers, otherwise there will be little left to remind us of Chicago's past.

A justly famous skyline, very well shown off here. You have so much fine heritage building stock, and it becomes dwarfed by the more contemporary beasts that scrape at the clouds... this is why great cities need street level exploration. Thanks for sharing !

Intersting perpective mixing two differents town plannings, rather classic or old one on the first ground and rather modern on the second.
