Chicago, Illinois - Willis Towers (Sears Building) - Skydeck Ledge

 Skydeck Ledge - I Was Here

The Ledge transforms how visitors experience Chicago.  At 1,353 feet up, The Ledge's glass balconies extend out 4.3 feet from the skyscraper's Skydeck on the 103rd floor.  The Ledge provides never-before-seen views of the city, from the tallest building in the western hemisphere.

I was here alright, but I was the person too scared to step onto the glass.  These ledges can be retracted into the building when wether turns nasty.  This is The Willis Towers, used to be the Sears Building.

This aerial view of Sears Tower beautifully reveals the dominance of the world's tallest building in Chicago's skyline.  Flanked by the John Hancock and Standard Oil Building in the background, this view features three of the world's seven tallest buildings. (at the time of printing, this is no longer true)
