When I went to Chicago with American Pig he had the assiduity to insist that we do some "NON" railfan activities. These includes some walks up the Magnificent Mile to the old Chicago Water Tower, visiting Buckingham Fountain, Millennium Park and the Navy Pier.
We also had to talk a nighttime walk up the mile, but that let me go down and take some pics of Chicago's lower level. Interesting how Chicago was able to elevate on top of its previous incarnations while New York City is still at ground level.

This is a smaller upload so its pretty manageable to get through them all.
Here's the Buckingham Fountain of Married With Children fame. Today it changes colours using LED lamps.
Hancock Tower and Water Tower in the daytime.
If I'm not mistaken here's the Picasso in the Honourable Richard J Daley Plaza.
