This church holds long-ago memories for me, as it is located on Michigan Avenue in Chicago, in the heart of the Magnificent Mile. To the left of the main building is a courtyard with benches where a friend and I often went to sit and rest and talk. The church, built in 1912, is surrounded by skyscrapers and traffic, much like its neighbor, the Water Tower.
4th Presbyterian is immediately across Michigan Avenue from the John Hancock Center, another favorite of mine. The Hancock has the best cocktail lounge on the 96th floor (the Signature Lounge), which has great panoramic views of the city (even in the ladies’ bathroom, with floor to ceiling windows that look to the Loop).
This video is long, but fascinating. The sights and sounds of the largest pipe organ in Chicago, which is located at 4th Presbyterian.
