Grant Park and S. Michigan Ave

Grant Park is proudly referred to as Chicago's "front yard. Its beginnings date to 1835, when foresighted citizens, fearing commercial lakefront development, lobbied to protect the open space.
Willis (former Sears) Tower is the tallest building in the background. It was the World’s tallest building for a while, and it houses the Skydeck (http://www.theskydeck.com/) on its 103rd floor.
