A few months ago I posted a photo along Lake Michigan with various apartment buildings in the background. One of those buildings was used in the opening credits of the 1970’s hit sitcom, “The Bob Newhart Show”. Bob played a Chicago psychiatrist; dead-panned, witty, and always perplexed by the ‘goings on’ of not only his patients but his close friends and neighbors.
Navy Pier here in Chicago recently displayed an, ‘ode to Bob Newhart’ in bronze form! I quite think it looks like him! You might be wondering why the statue is located at Navy Pier; truly, I haven’t the foggiest with the exception of a guess on my part. Navy Pier is the most popular tourist attraction in Chicago; more people to see it there, I suppose.
Oh, here is the photo with “Bob’s apartment building” I was talking about:
It’s the taller building left of the center of the photo!
Congratulations Bob Newhart; you are forever etched in the hearts (and bronze!) of your fans!
