Good catch. Way to use the horizon as a benchmark.

OMP's reign lasted for 11 years, I doubt NEMA can hold it for that long

Does BCBS have an observation deck?

Edit: I just realized that was probably for Open House Chicago

Yeah, I made the rounds on Saturday. I have the full photo thread in My City Photos. The view of the South Loop is a wild scene compared to 10 years ago.

I will be visiting my parents in Orland Park this winter and I always remember being able to see one museum park from the 143rd St. Metra station I bet you could see NEMA as well I'm excited to check it out!

I was eating at MingHin in Chinatown on Sunday (10.21), when I turned around and chanced upon NEMA creeping over the plaza's green roof. Climbing higher every day.
