    I didn't have this building on my list, but I caught my attention on the street and then I looked it up. It's worth watching from the outside and also going in. The library is huge and amazing, there's free wifi and restrooms if you need them. Everyone was very kind. I wanted to visit the winter garden but it was closed for a private event, so check first!

    4,192 seat theater (Arie Crown)
    3 theaters seating 300 each
    Ceiling heights up to 50 feet
    Easy access and 6,000 parking spaces
    Nearly 3,000 hotel rooms and suites connected via skybridges.

    And nearly 1000 Migratory birds collided with your windows in a single night.
    Turn off the lights in the evening can cut this number by 60 percent potentially.

    Its a beautiful facility, with so much to offer, work with Bird-Friendly Buildings initiative to make it even better.

    Newberry has a stellar reputation amongst libraries with a very unique collection of ancient manuscripts and maps. My advance research made my day easy since I applied for a Readers Card in advance and hunted on their website for items I wanted to see. On arrival, a staff person in the Reference Area right off the entrance helped me fill in the items I had dreamed about - a real, yes, real First Shakespeare Folio from 1623; and an English illuminated manuscript from 1520s recommended by the staff person that turned out to also be a thrill of a lifetime. How lucky there is such an institution in the US.

    A great place to get a tour of the city's architecture! We chose a cruise and loved it! Support this non-profit organization by taking a tour!

    The Visitor Center is a bit of a work in progress. There are displays set up around the building, including a model of the town, photos, some Pullman Car items, and things like that. Maybe, in the future, once they get the large building refurbished, they can have a Pullman Car display. Just because it isn't all new and shiny, doesn't mean it's not interesting.

    Had a great time seeing all the pics, hearing the music of, and viewing the exhibits of the gear/musical instruments/clothing/diaries, etc of the Stones. I grew up listening to them and it brought back some great memories. Seeing their stuff up close and personal was really cool. They had Keith's diary, lyrics notebooks from Mick, set lists, etc. We cool to see that they even have flair when their handwriting! Felt like I have a better understanding of their roots

    This is home to the historic pumping station. Also acts as a small information centre and little library. Seems odd this survivor from the 1800'S amidst massive skyscrapers.

    This particular location is very fun and the location is accessible to the Chicago River Branch as well. The Red Line CTA train is nearby. In addition, there are plenty of shopping markets to buy anything that you might need.

    I recently signed up for French classes here. So far so good. I’m not disappointed. I am just confused by the class schedule- system-numbering... and this location doesn’t have its own parking but they validate parking tickets ( for $9)

    We attended a large wedding here. The venue is large and inviting. Although it is industrial looking, it can be warmed up nicely. The food was superb. The feeling was chic but the focus remained clearly on the bride/groom and the attendees. A great way to start a life.

    My wife and I live on Chicago's Gold Coast and for years we visited the Barnes & Noble bookstore at 1130 North State Street for our literary needs. Then, like so many other bookstores, it closed. Fortunately, another Barnes & Noble is located conveniently at 1441 West Webster, at Clybourn, in the Webster Place shopping mall. With lots of parking. Open from 10 to 7 Monday through Saturday and from 11 to 7 on Sunday, it is an all-encompassing store that includes a cafe and offers magazines, textbooks, toys, games, stationery, gifts, DVDs, vinyl records, music, Blu-rays and kids' books. Service is swift and friendly. On our most recent visit, I was able to purchase an early copy of Twilight of the Gods, Ian W. Toll's final volume of his well documented and fascinating study of his War in the Pacific trilogy. This book covers 1944-1945, from the Battle of the Philippine Sea to the Japanese surrender in Tokyo Bay, I love history, especially the Civil War and World War II, and I never cease to marvel at how much new material is uncovered by such gifted writers as Toll.
