      1. It’s amazing what’s on teh interwebs. He’s around 100 ft up, and approximately 7 miles nearly straight south of downtown proper. If you want exact orientation, look up the U of C campus on any map program. Close enough for your purposes.

  1. Yep, that’s a concrete jungle. I live in a town with a population of about 2,300. When I look out my window I see tree-covered mountains and a beautiful valley to the south. All I see in this picture is monstrous concrete and steel. I don’t know how you city dwellers can breathe in those surroundings.

    1. I haven’t seen the sky in ages. But I live in a bungalow, not a hi-rise.

      Serious about that. Surrounded by dense 2 story houses and trees. Not a horizon in sight, even from the upstairs window. I miss seeing the clouds and storms roll in, and the stars at night. Need to head off to the sticks once in a while, just for sanity.

      I’d live on a farm in Wisconsin if I didn’t have to make a living.

    2. πŸ™ Jealous of London.
      Still, off to Cromer in Norfolk tonight using up annual leave so will have the cool North Sea air to inhale!

    3. I live in the heart of downtown Seattle, and when I look out my window, I see tree- and snow-covered mountains, beautiful lakes, river valleys, and seascapes, plus tree-lined streets, interesting architecture, and high-density housing that enables many people to live efficiently in a much smaller per-person footprint than rural dwellers occupy. And I’m within walking distance of grocery stores, museums, restaurants and coffee shops, theaters, parks, ballet, symphony, and opera, plus many other amenities that you’d have to drive to. No concrete jungle here, and I can breathe just fine.
