Description: This is Chicago, IL. If you are wondering how a non-professional got access to such a high vantage, don't think I pulled any strings. Open to all public is the Skydeck. This is a floor of the Willis Tower (formerly known as sears tower (formerly known as tallest building in the world)) (Yes i did just put a parentheses inside a parentheses (what is this algebra?)) which puts you above the entire city of Chicago. I believe it is the 103rd of the 112th story. Regardless, you are some 1300 feet above the street and on a clear day one can see for 50 miles. Yes, 50. MILES. Also another amazing part of the skydeck (aside from the fact that you get this view for 14 bucks) is something called the ledge. It is about an 8 by 4 foot box, that pertrudes from the side of the building. The bottom and side are completely made of plexiglass. You can literally stand outside of the building, and look down as your feet seemingly stand in thin air, where cars look like ants. People are not even visible...they seem like specs of sand. I recommend this to anyone without a fear of heights, who is in Chicago. The only negative of the skydeck is that all of your photographs of Chicago, are void of the Willis tower, the architectural marvel of this city. Its like Paris without the Eiffel tower, or nyc without the statue of liberty. But navy pier is always there for you to get good ol' Willis.
