Chicago skyline

This little suburbanite gets into the city from time to time!! I mean...I ONLY live 30 miles from Michigan Ave(downtown Chicago) and this is a picture of the Chicago skyline when I was on my way in to China Town. The big, tall building to the right-or south- is the Sears Tower and the one you see to the left-between the lamp posts-or north- that looks very similar to the Sears Tower- is the John Hancock Building. For those of you that are familiar with the roads around Chicago, I am coming into the city on the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290).

  1. Hi Neva,

    So you have no traffic jams like we have here in Holland? I can NOT IMAGINE, we live 20 KMts from AAmsterdam (by train 20 minutes) By car (without traffic jam plm 15 minutes) But NO WAY wedo a good 1 - up to 1 1 /2 hour about going there!!!!

    So you better drive there where you live... :)

    JoAnn :)

  2. OK...I have faked you out....it was Sunday morning and there is usually not a lot of traffic on Sunday mornings. This would be bumper to bumper and take over an hour if it were during the week! It's why I went on Sunday morning...I hate traffic....

  3. Beautiful blue sky! My grandmother was from Chicago but I've never been there.

  4. Wow - the Big Smoke - great photo.
    Now I have more of an idea where you live.

    The sky reminds me of the Australian sky - so big and wide and blue!!!

  5. belle photo, de cette belle skyline de chicago.
    J'espere que ce n'etait pas toi qui conduisait ;o)

    beautiful photograph, of this beautiful skyline of Chicago.
    I hope that it was not you who led ;O)

  6. I guess you are much happier being a suburbanite than having to live every single day in a town like Chicago.
    But, on the other hand, I think all those blues bars are in Chicago... therefor...

  7. The blueness is stunning and so clear to say it is over such a big city.. In Manchester it would be covered by a layer of pollution.. how sad is that.

  8. Neva, I was wondering why the commute was so light -- Sunday. Also looks like a pretty clear day.

    Thanks for you kind words on my blog.

  10. some day, some day... I wont to visit the USA.

  11. Marie and Olivier..no is was not me!

  12. Thanks for commenting on my blog earlier. It's always a pleasure to read new blogs. I really like Chicago and had a chance to eat at a restaurant near the top of the John Hancock Bldg, but I'm not sure if its still there.

  13. I like coming in through 290 if I have to go out to the "outer areas" ;) the best part according to my kids is going under the post office and then the chicago stock ex building, but usually they are pretty squirmy by then and are annoyed by how long the trip home has taken
