The current statute is Abe Lincoln and a gentleman tourist. It is very tall. I've heard it was put there by Illinois tourist group.

The statue of the American Gothic has not been in this plaza for about 5 years. The city rotates in different types of statues that are displayed in the plaza - but this one is long gone. We walk by this area weekly.

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
