December in Chicago…

by Krista

The Chicago Theatre

It’s been nice being in town. The city looks nice in winter when there’s no snow and the skies are clear.

Barry's Wicker ParkI’m enjoying exploring my neighborhood. I love this old sign on Milwaukee Avenue, storifying the neighborhood’s Polish roots.

The PittsfieldThere are some buildings in downtown Chicago that are ridiculously gorgeous. Like The Pittsfield Building, where I’ve been having lunch a lot lately.

Pittsfield ElevatorWith technology, signage of the old kind vanishes.

Pittsfield ChandelierIndoor chandeliers disappear too. I give you the lobby of The Pittsfield.

Caffe StreetsOn the weekends, I’ve been drinking a lot of coffee at Caffe Streets, even though it never does seem quite hot enough for me.

Hip-Hop Not WarAnd I admire the street art as I make my way around town, thinking about how quickly the time goes and how dark the evenings are when I am in Chicago.

Given that I am experiencing my first non European Christmas for quite a while your pics are making me nostalgic for a cheery, rug up type of christmas. Should not complain about the Australian sunshine though!
