Wilson Yard, An Aerial View of Uptown Chicago in 1996

While trying to verify another image of Uptown, I stumbled across this aerial view of the neighborhood, taken in 1996. Follow this link to see more skyline view of Chicago from this time period at SkyScraperCity.com.

How much the city has changed in only 14 years! Fire burned the shops at Wilson Yard on October 26, 1996. The site was cleared soon thereafter. Today, it is home to a Target.
