Quirky Characters, Roadside Oddities, & Other Offbeat StuffeBook - 2010
Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Windy City has to offer! Whether you’re a born-and-raised Chicagoan, a recent transplant, or just passing through, Chicago Curiosities will have you laughing out loud as Scotti Cohn takes you on a rollicking tour of the strangest sides of the Windy City. Watch Daedalus and Icarus fly across the façade of the Savings of America Building—and wonder if the mural’s location might carry a message for the financial industry. . . . A baboon with wings? A predatory grasshopper? Figure out for yourself just what Picasso’s “gift to Chicago”—a sculpture unveiled in 1967—represents. Want to stand out? You can do so at the Ledge at Skydeck Chicago, an all-glass architectural wonder attached to the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower). Meet the man who travels the world impersonating President Obama.
