First part of a 3-city trip, Endre Barath, Jr. ! Picking up my niece from Columbia University--we drive her back to Cleveland tomorrow, then Monday I fly out to NYC to see my wonderful friend Joanna Cohlan for 3 days! 

This is truly a gorgeous city, FILLED with great art and architecture. We visited the ARt Institute today, along with going to an incredible French restaurant and many other things. We "ubered" it all over--what a great inner-city way to travel! I am no longer an Uber virgin.

Gotta say, Endre Barath, Jr. it made such sense with all of the traffic around here, NOT to have to deal with parking as we went to many places today including Home Depot to p/u boxes for her stuff, as she goes to London to study for her next semester after her summer's over!

I really like Chicago. The thing that struck me about that city when i visited was the distinctly different down town buildings.  Each one had its own personality

The skyline of the windy city has lots of huge buildings to block that often gusty breeze from Lake Michigan...enjoy !

I love the photograph and delighted to know you're spending time in my home town Chicago with your sister! One of the many jobs where I worked in Downtown was on East South Water Street by the Marina Towers in that photograph. From the home I lived in as a kid, I always had a view of the John Hancock Building and my father worked on many of those buildings.

Have a blast!!!
