Monument to Americana

“My kind of town, Chicago is ..”

And the best view of the town – day or night – is from the top of the Sears Tower, a black monolith visible for miles rising high above the city’s skyline.

If one can move beyond the jet elevator to the top and the swaying sensation experienced in the observation deck’s restrooms, this is one of Chicago’s biggest thrills.

The Sears Tower remains – at 110 stories – the nation’s tallest skyscraper, and today this momument to Americana becomes the Willis Tower.
