I have been at Roosevelt and Indiana in One Museum Park for over a year now and my appreciation for life in the South Loop continues to grow!
A weekend like this first weekend in August is a perfect example of how exciting it can be here. We have a hundred thousand people per day attending Lollapalooza for the next three days while our First Neighbor to the south, President Obama, shuttles back and forth from Hyde Park up to Lincoln Park for his birthday events.
You would never believe what I see from my perch on the 14th floor of One Museum Park! I watched the preparations for Lollapalooza start from scratch then progress like watching a time-lapse movie, with barricades, fencing, and huge stages appearing as if from nowhere, to the point where all of the stages were up by Thursday afternoon, and the sound checks of all the headlining bands began.
