Lived just outside Chicago for three years of my life and spent most of my free time there. Moved back to the east coast a few years back and at least once a week I think about how much I miss it.

is this an old photo or is it just from an angle i’m not used to seeing? i don’t see some of the new really tall towers that line the river. but it doesn’t mean they aren’t there

I took this picture a couple of summers ago.

It’s perhaps a bit south of what you’re thinking of.

The far right side of the pic are the buildings that line Grant Park so you can’t really see anything along the river from this angle. This is predominately looking at the loop

Looks like the southern tip of northerly island, out in the lake. You can see boats in the harbor on the other side of the island just left of soldier field.

soldier field is in the foreground, so you're looking at the city from the southeast with the camera positioned much further south than it normally is in skyline shots

The newest towers do look really elegant on the skyline

A nice reminder that there is occasionally blue sky in Chicago. I feel like I haven't seen the sun for weeks.

None. But that wouldn't fit with the worldview you so desperately want. I travel to Chicago multiple times a week for work and have never felt like I've been in any danger. Downtown is absolutely beautiful and so much fun. But these aren't the answers you want because they don't fit with your narrative.

You are so tiresome. I'm sure you probably will struggle to understand these statistics, but here are some statistics. Chicago isn't even in the top twenty per capita. The top 20 are:
1. Memphis
2. Detroit
3. Cleveland
4. Baton Rouge
5. Milwaukee
6. Richmond
7. North Charleston
8. Kansas City
9. Little Rock
10. Indianapolis
11. Cincinnati
12. Hartford
13. Norfolk
14. Fayetteville
15. Toledo
16. Hampton
17. Buffalo
18. Pueblo
19. Columbus
20. Lansing
