We like the view from higher ground. Probably something encoded in our DNA from times past, when staking out a place on a hill or bluff meant you were drier--and you could keep a better eye out for approaching danger (or food.) In a city without hills, we made our own. And the views can be amazing.
The above photo is the corner of Randolph and Columbus, shot from the 22nd floor of the Aon Building--but with a long lens that probably makes the shot appear about 15 stories closer.
