Today Bob and I took the train into Chicago for some sight-seeing.

Chicago has a different flavor than New York. It's downtown "skyscraper" district is not quite as big, not quite as crowded. Also, there are parts of New York that are much older than most of Chicago. One reason for this is the Great Chicago Fire, which pretty much leveled the town. The architects that went about redesigning and rebuilding the city tarted with pretty much a blank canvas.

One of the best ways to view the architecture is on an architectural boat excursion, which Bob and I took today. Just images today, not much narrative ...
