Marina City Roofdeck Walk

Living in Marina City may drive me up a wall a good portion of the time, but there’s one thing that always clears my mind: a walk along the 61st floor roofdeck. Oddly enough, a high-speed, thirty-second elevator ride from the lobby to 550 feet above ground level is the best way I know to stay grounded. Take a circular stroll with me around the 360-degree path with panoramic views of downtown Chicago and find out what truly keeps me in the corncobs.

(Video: When I need to get above the fray, it takes about 550 feet–straight up.)

  1. Yikes!

    Isn’t it kinda scary up there?? I mean don’t you get that queasy feeling in your stomach as you get closer to the edge of the roof?

    But, what a view! Wow. And, what a beautiful Chicago afternoon. You’ve got quite a city there.
