Old Town to the Loop


  1. Always liked the Chicago skyline, even though most of the buildings I know are barely visible, like Marina Towers on the left side of the picture. The old beacon on the Palmolive build (now Playboy Building) would shine directly into the windows of the new, taller buildings, so it no longer operates.

  2. Those are all great buildings. I have heard the story about the city discontinuing the beacon. The Palmolive Building is one of my favorite Gold Coast high-rises.
