We saw some amazing buildings during our visit to Bronzeville, but if you want to see the city from the top of a skyscraper, you have to go downtown. This weekend, Open House Chicago participants took in views Loop from the rooftop of the Sky-Line Club and stepped into the subterranean vault beneath the Chicago Board of Trade Building. Our photographer stepped inside the Oriental Theatre, the Warwick Allerton Hotel and more downtown buildings to bring back photos of these impressive structures.
