Chicago LXVII by DanielJButler Chicago LXVII by DanielJButler
The NBC Tower in Chicago sits directly behind the Tribune Tower in the Near North neighborhood. An Art Deco beauty built in 1989. It is, IMO, one of the most overlooked building in the city.

Film Scan! Settings & Equipment:

Minolta Maxxum 5, Tokina 19-35mm, Ilford Panf Plus 50 ISO

F/16, 15". Digital finishing with GIMP.

Chicago, IL, USA. January 2010.

Another one put up after I left town. It never stops changing and growing. Kudos. Well done, and I'm sure you are right about it's status as an overlooked beauty. It sure is a good lookin' building in this shot.

What's crazy is that this building is literally just off the beaten path of the Mag Mile. The Wrigley, Tribune, etc. are right there. I guess people don't watch NBC that much. *shrugs shoulders*

Oh they watch plenty. lol. It's just that the little pocket of land this is on, is really out of the way.
When you said it was behind the Trib, I knew where it had to be. Kind of clever, really. Geographically close to the action, but like you said, just off the beaten path. (not so expensive)
