Trip to Willis (Sears) Tower and Union Station
By JFLMad and Jimactor
We went to Willis Tower, formerly Sears Tower; to see the new ledges. The Ledge enclosures will extend more than four feet beyond the building, and will be retractable so they won’t interfere with window washers. The glass are three layers thick and each layer is a half-inch thick. The balconies will be able to hold about five tons. It was an awesome feeling when standing on the ledge! After that, we went to see Chicago Union Station to revisit the old historic building.
