Chicago's Loop: A New Walking Tour with Geoffrey Baer DVD
Look up toward the sky as Geoffrey Baer takes us on an exciting new journey through the skyscraper canyons of Chicago's downtown Loop, revealing the secrets behind the city's most iconic landmarks and showing us why Chicago is considered the birthplace of the skyscraper.
We'll dive into the fascinating history of downtown Chicago's rise, fall and rebirth...from the Loop's heyday as a hub of theaters, restaurants, movie palaces and nightclubs, to the area's steep decline in the 1960s and 70s, and finally to its renaissance as the bustling downtown where people live, work, and play today. We'll begin with some of the first skyscrapers ever built, and end with an inside look at the newest tall towers just beyond the borders of the Loop. Grab your walking shoes and follow Geoffrey as we explore the spectacular architecture and rich history of Chicago's Loop!
