Chicago’s Wrigley Building was built from 1920 to 1924 as the first skyscraper north of the Chicago River. It’s a stunner at any time of the day, but I especially like it at night. Its white facade, beautifully lit, stands in contrast to the dark buildings all around it.
The building’s south tower is the taller of the two, 30 stories vs. 21.
The building is covered head to toe in terra cotta, providing no end of interesting detail to study.
I focused my lens on the south tower far more than the north, but here’s one good shot of the north tower, its entrance.
The north tower is 410 N. Michigan Ave., the south is 400.
The two towers are separated by a little alley, with a third-floor bridge connecting the two buildings and framing the scene.
There are no shortage of wonderful angles from which to compose interesting photographs.
