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

The November 5 Tribune cover



The Tribune storefront


More Obama books.....

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