      All the photos you see on my blog are from my phone! But that is about to change; I received a lovely Sony camera for Christmas, so I’m just getting the hang of it before I start taking pics for the blog! Cher xo

    I still think that’d be the coolest place to live. I remember when they built it.

      Isn’t this cool, Erika? And they do not allow residents to park their own vehicles. They have valets that are trained to park them, going into their spots BACKWARDS. 🙂 You must come back to Chicago and explore lots more! Cher xo

        These buildings have been in a number of movies. Well, lots of movies are filmed here and tv shows, but the actual structures have appeared in some interesting films. One had a car literally ‘falling’ from the parking area into the Chicago River below!

      Aren’t they something, Carol? Certainly an interesting landmark! I’ve sometimes said to visitors, “When you see the Corncob buildings, you are going in the right direction!” *biggest grin* Thank you, Carol! Cher xo
