What people are saying:

The Rookery Building is a historical building in the financial district of Chicago. It was built in 1871 after the Great Fire. The interior light court was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the early 1900’s. This building houses businesses, a Potbelly, and has plenty of tourists visiting to ooh and ahh over the masterpiece. It’s a beautiful and thoughtful designed building, inside and out.
