Slice of Life: The Other North Shore


Some of the best views in Chicago are from the John Hancock Center (875 North Michigan Avenue).  And some of the most coveted views from that building are of Chicago’s north shore.

Before you reach the “North Shore” communities like Wilmette and HighParkLakeOakForest, there is Chicago’s own north shore, a lovely string of beaches and parks lined with more residential high rises than most cities have in their downtowns.

Thanks to Loop Spy Jessica for sending in the lovely photo.
