Downtown Skyscrapers and the Art Institute

The condominium boom in Chicago has transformed the skyline into a modern city, very different from Manhattan with its rich history.  Whereas the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building tower over Midtown, the Aon Center and the Trump Tower as well as the new condos dominate the view from the lake.  In the middle of all this is the Art Institute, sitting on the edge of the city like the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Central Park.  It’s quite a contrast that the relatively younger city continues to look young compared to cities back east.
