    Huge, enormous, grandiose....are adjectives to describe this edifice.
    First we saw it during our 90 min architectural boat tour. The guide stated many hard to believe figures about its construction in terms of miles of wiring, concrete used, window numbers,...etc and that until recently this building only had its own zip number.
    Tomorrow we walked the Riverwalk and standing in front of it felt like ants.
    It's an enormous shopping and event venue with an odd mixture of Art Deco and massive brutalist Soviet architecture.

    Beautiful, intimate church in downtown Chicago. Attended Holy Mass as guest and very much enjoyed the experience. Parishioners welcoming of guests, peaceful service and great homily (by pastor of the church, father Joe). If you visit Chicago and look for a great church to attend Mass, consider going to Assumption Catholic Church.

    I ran a program and served in a plenary panel at a major conference held at the McCormick. It's a huge hall with high ceilings, vast spaces, easy-on the ears acoustics, and plntiful supplies of low to medium quality coffee, Danish and sandwich options. For someone like me who has mobility challenges it requires WAY too much walking, but there are wheelchair and electric cart options, so no complaints. A gentleman on staff who gave me wrong directions because I asked him a question based on an inaccurate realized the problem and walked a full city block to find me and escort me to the right place: saved my day energy-wise and made me live the Center!

    Whenever we go by on the Brown Line train I see this list of names and never realized what it was. There are 70 names on the list and was crated by Chicago Artist Adam Brooks. All of his artwork has to do with text. He solicited names from over 600 people - from children to adults and these were the 70 most commonly mentioned names.
