Status Update: Crown Fountain

It’s unusual for us to do a “Status Update” for something that’s already completed.  But if, like us, you have people in town from other parts of the country for a wedding, you should know that the Crown Fountain (let’s call it 1 North Michigan Avenue) is being repaired.  So when you bring your guests down to Millennium Park, be sure to spend extra time at The Bean, because while the water is flowing at Crown, none of your neighbors’ faces are being projected on the glassy monoliths.
