My dad drove so I got to enjoy the view of our great city as I sat in the passenger seat along Lake Shore Drive. No matter how many times I'm in the city (I live in the south burbs), I never cease to be amazed at the beautiful architecture and the brilliant skyline.
That black building on the left is the John Hancock Center. As we drove by, my dad told me that he watched it being built in the 1960's when he worked for the IRS in an adjacent building. He said he watched them build it floor by floor. At the time it was completed in 1968, it was the tallest building int the world outside New York City. It has a magnificent restaurant on the 95th floor with great views of the city.
