"This is my kind of town, Chicago is
My kind of town, Chicago is
My kind of people too
People who smile at you"...Frank Sinatra
Took the train to Chicago this weekend. A nice relaxing trip. Walked around absorbing the sights and the sounds.
This is a picture of Cloud Gate aka The Bean. This is the work of British artist Anish Kapoor. Kapoor's inspiration was liquid mercury. The sculpture is 66-feet long and 33-feet high.
An interesting way to see the city skyline. It has become the most popular tourist spot in the city
Rest of the pictures are here
Quote of the day
"I am going to St. Petersburg, Florida, tomorrow. Let the worthy citizens of Chicago get their liquor the best they can. I'm sick of the job--it's a thankless one and full of grief. I've been spending the best years of my life as a public benefactor"
... Al Capone, 1927
