    Christmas Shopping at Marshall Fields

    When in New York City you find Macy's, in London you find Harrods. And in Chicago you find Marshall Fields. Their Christmas window displays are beautiful. You have to literally stand in line to get a chance to look at the displays.

    Marshall Field's Department Store
    Huge department store on State St., much like that of Macy's-fame. But this is better than Macy's (I've been to Macy's). Ok, yeah, it's still just a department store inside, but outside it's all decorated at Christmas, and there's always the large clock on its corner. Get some Frango mints while you're here!

    Chicago's City Hall is a handsome neo-classical structure that was built between 1909 and 1911 by the noted architectural firm of Holabird & Roche. Between 1906 and 1907 they constructed its twin, the County Building on the east half of the block. Together the two structures form a monumental civic edifice that covers an entire city block and measures 337 feet along LaSalle and Clark Streets and 214 feet along Randolph and Washington Streets.

    I'm just loading pictures and place holders until I can get back and add some text. Come back in November and see what's been added.

    This area does not only have a couple of event houses such as Theatres (Chicago) but also plenty of shops, banks, some restaurants. The red line (CTA) Metro is running underneath it...

    State street is one of the main streets in Chicago paralel with Michigan avenue. Lot of shops (better prices than Michigan avenue), restaurants, theatres (Chicago theatre) etc.
