    The balcony on the 22nd floor is still one of the best views in the city, if you ask me. Second favorite spot in the Tower? The bank of windows on the 5th floor overlooking the newsroom below.

    If you're here for Open House Chicago and expecting an awesome view, you're only going to see the lobby.😳In 2014, 2600 people waited in line on Saturday, in the rain, for as much as TWO hours! DON'T!
