    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!

    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.

    take a look around the lobby. You can't go past security but the lobby is beautiful. And after Thanksgiving, the awesome Christmas tree goes up.

    Those rocks in the wall outside? Once upon a time, it's rumored the foreign correspondents were responsible for procuring them. Not true now.

    Remember President Thomas Dewey? In the 1948 election, the Chicago Tribune headline read "Dewey Defeats Truman". MUCH later, all laughed about it as President Truman posed for pictures with the paper.
