Secret Spaces Atop Chicago: A CULTURAL HISTORY OF THE URGE TO CLIMB ABOVE

BEHIND THE SCENES

Tony Macaluso takes us up to the top of the tower at the Auditorium Theater. On this roof, there used to be a popular observation deck. We're standing right above what used to be Sullivan's office, on the top floor of the tower. Today, it's offices for Roosevelt University and the roof is mechanical access only.

 

Views from the tops of famous Chicago buildings. Photos by Kate Joyce to be featured in Tony Macaluso's book, Secret Spaces Atop Chicago: A Cultural History of the Urge to Climb Above.
