Rate this:
Chicago grew up on the site of Old Fort Dearborn, once America's westernmost outpost. Today, it is a vibrant, progressive city with one of the most recognizable skylines in the world. Soar over the Windy City like you never have before - from high up above its famous skyscrapers - in Chicago From the Air: Then and Now. Explore Chicago's beloved landmarks from an exciting aerial vantage point! This new from-the-air angle sheds fresh light on its development from the 1800s to today. Chicago boasts some of the world's tallest buildings, including the Sears Tower and the John Hancock Building; soon it will be home to the new Trump Tower, which at 1,131 feet will command an enormous chunk of the skyline at Navy Pier. No aerial tour would be complete without Wrigley Field, the 'last great American ballpark.' Dedicated to tradition, the ballpark hasn't changed much over the years, but the surrounding 'Wrigleyville' has certainly grown.
