The city of Chicago is like New York in many ways – big, beautiful, and full of life and energy. Chicago also has its own sense of place and style. While it’s possible to get a great shot of the city from the Signature Room restaurant located on the 95th floor of the John Hancock Building, it tends to be crowded and it’s not so easy to get a clean shot through the window due to distracting interior lights. For the general admission price of $18 it is worth your time to visit the observation deck on the 94th floor. It’s open until 11pm, has a nice cafÃ© where I got some coffee so I could keep shooting on into the night. I was able to use my tripod and take my time with different exposures.
