Millenium Park in the Summer
My apologies for the delay in posting these last few days. Migration from one computer to another is never as easy as planned. Still not completely up to speed, but eventually it will happen. As the weather turns better in Chicago, the city's parks spring to life. The newest -- Millenium Park -- opened in 2004. It was supposed to open at the turn of the century, but building it took 4 years longer than expected and the cost rose from an estimated $150 million to $475 million. Still, most city dwellers like the 24.5 acre park located between the heart of downtown and the lakefront. Here is a photo of one of two 50 foot towers that project faces from people of Chicago. Every 4 minutes the faces pucker and out shoots a stream of water to the delight of younger visitors who can freely splash in the fountain.
