Donald Trumps Downtown

401 N. Wabash Avenue. Though the new Trump Tower isn't one hundred percent complete, it's already been the subject of debate for its steel, glass and stone design by architecture critics and reviewers. IMHO, I think it's a noteworthy presence along the Chicago River (and a lot better looking than the old Sun-Times building). Besides, I think all that shiny stuff does brighten up stodgy old Wabash Avenue...

  7. blue chick, I agree, if it wasn't for the Donald, who else would we hold up as the epitome of cheesy nouveau-riche?!! He is seriously entertaining!

  8. Thank you, Sam and Web-OJ...

    Web-OJ, I was wondering why you specified a first floor place? Is it because you like to be close to the ground I guess Me too, but I also like to imagine all the nice photo ops from up high...

    Sam, with hair like his, how can anyone resist...?!?
