Learn About the Towers That Make Up Chicago's Iconic Skyline

New, 4 comments

Chicago's skyline is known throughout the world, but how much do you really know about the city's buildings that line Lake Michigan? Besides digging through online databases and Wikis, there are many great resources out there to pick up some info about Chicago's best-known skyscrapers. A new web app from Chicago Line Cruises lets visitors simply scroll and click on buildings to reveal some stats about each building. In total, 37 buildings are featured, along with silhouetted images of each one giving an idea of how they stack up in size and scale. The only missing piece of crucial info is the address of each building, but if you're a longtime resident, you likely have a very good idea where many of these buildings are located.
