A view from the top

I give a lot of building tours here at work and the main attraction to those visiting is the roof. Everyone wants to go to the roof to see the unobstructed views of the city. We have a fantastic view of the Sears Tower (or Willis Tower, however you know it as) as well as views of Millenium Park, Lake Michigan and Trump Tower. On my most recent tour, it was a partly cloudy day but I decided to snap a few of my own photos:

The Aon Center (formerly Amoco Building) mimics the World Trade Centers in construction and design. Directly to the left of that building (with the point) is Two Prudential Plaza, followed by Prudential Plaza directly in from of it.

And a view of Lake Michigan and the Harbor

This is a view that contains the former Marshall Fields (now the worlds largest Macy's), the Chicago Theatre, Chicago ABC broadcast station and I think it's CBS that moved in to block 37...? (the building with all of the satellites on it).
