Barack In The City

As America made history last Tuesday night by electing President Elect Barack Obama, Chicago, the Second City, was the epicenter of festivities. And as of today, it is also the seat of the transition government as President Elect Obama continues to stay here, more specifically in the Hyde Park neighborhood until he moves to Washington. So today, still basking in the glow of the recent events, I went around MY city with Abbi capturing some Obama-mania. Check out the pictures below:

The banners at the Cook County Office across from the Daley Center

Here's a close-up

the top of the lamp posts -- very detailed I must say!

more Obama banners on Washington Street

This is Randolph Street, Chicago's theatre district. Beyond is the Palace Theatre which currently houses Dirty Dancing before it comes to Broadway.

The Chicago Tribune Building

Again, the Tribune Building

The lobby of the Tribune Building where they were selling copies of the November 5 newspaper

Poster outside

The November 5 Tribune cover

The Tribune storefront

More Obama books.....

Again the Tribune's funny because Pres. Elect Obama is a Sox fan but hmmmm no White Sox paraphernalia can be seen
