I enjoyed the video but I have to ask - what was that tapping noise like someone was hitting their cane against the sidewalk???

Yeah, it was over a minute, not exactly "short", but not Saving Private Ryan either. LOL That part of downtown hosts many older and beautiful buildings (ie, Wrigley, Tribune, Carbide and Carbon), but isnt my fave part of downtown, not even close. What you saw there was only about 5% of the downtown area at best. I could be downtown for weeks and not see everything. Thats what I love so much about Chicago. For only having 3 million people, its skyline is superb.

Twinkle Toes, sorry about that, it was the lens cap hitting the microphone. I didnt realize it was loose until I got home. I usually hold the cap with my hand to prevent that, but I had my tripod with me (was taking pics that night also) in the other hand, so I couldnt hold the cap down. I had it wrapped around the handle, but it came loose apparently. Here are some quick pics I took that night.

Oh, well you got to give Chi more than that, now. Population is overrated; furthermore, it's a minuscule factor for a city of that magnitude.

mpope409, it could have been a horse for all I know, there are lots of horse-drawn carriages runnin around downtown, but those are closer to Millenium Park or by the old water tower on North Michigan Ave near the Hancock.

I'm sure the residents of Tokyo, London, Sao Paulo, etc would be fascinated to discover that bit of knowledge

I love nyc as much as the next person, but contrary to the opinion of some, it is not the center of the world (and yes I've been to London, Sao Paulo, and New York, but not Tokyo, not yet)

In America, NYC is THE city. I've been to London, and NYC has more personality.
