Mrakodrap Chicago Board of Trade Building byl postaven v r. 1930 ve stylu Art Deco. Najdete ho jen par minut pesky od Willis Tower.

It is a short walking distance from the Willis Tower but you can’t go inside unless you have a pass or reserved a tour. We walked outside and enjoyed the building’s Art Deco. It is made famous in numerous movies like the Dark Knight.

Historic landmark with significant architectural and design items. Tour of facility gets you information and sights not available to passerby's. Go when floor is active for a bonus.

A place where history of Chicago and the market is alive. Was here for business but I was lucky to be here and had lunch at the cafe on the first floor.

It's hard to believe the Chicago Board of Trade was once the tallest building in Chicago. It's only 605 feet, over 800 feet shorter than the Willis Tower. It's still a fine building, a great example of Art Deco. Movie buffs will know this building...More
