When you think of iconic views of the city of Chicago most people think of the Willis Tower or the John Hancock Observatory. While both of these locations are fantastic, there is another location that few people have been to and is rarely recommended to photographers and tourists alike. This location is the top level of the Rush Hospital parking lot.
The parking lot is just a few miles west of the city and has an unobstructed view of downtown Chicago. If you don't have a car, it's a little difficult to get there but if you do have a car I highly suggest experiencing a sunset from the top floor. The parking is not free but it's not expensive for an hour or two.
I've visited the parking lot for both a few sunrises and a few sunsets and they are equally amazing. Below are a few of my favorite photos from one of my experiences.
