The Chicago Files

A CANADIAN EXPAT'S EXPERIENCES AND OBSERVATIONS LIVING IN THE WINDY CITY!

wrigley-building-3

The sky was flawlessly blue the other day when I snapped this photo!   I love the Wrigley Building in downtown Chicago (its the old building with the clock adorning it).  I also love/hate the juxtaposition of the modern buildings.  What do you think?

        Gum was a bit of a joke with a long since Ex in the early 80’s. We went to Toronto for a few days, days I can’t speak of here but wow…

    Nice post, Cher! Chicago’s architecture is wonderful in so many ways and the Wrigley Building is a key part of that.

      Why thank you, Brett! I agree completely! The architecture here is the most diverse (yet collegial) I’ve seen anywhere. Cher xo

      I think the Wrigley Building should have a big wrapper on the side, eh Andy? ;-P Cher xo

    Great picture of one of the most-recognizable buildings in Chicago. Chicago might be the greatest city for architcture in the world, certainly in the United States.

      Thank you, John! I absolutely agree; I don’t think I’ve ever seen a city with such magnificent (and diverse) architecture anywhere. Yet, it all works together, doesn’t it? Cher xo

    I like the mix of old building and new building together. It makes subtly the point of how the city is never a finished thing; it runs backwards and forwards without limits too.
