Park facing Sears Tower on Jackson
It’s like most idyllic lunchtime spots downtown: green grass and flowers amid the concrete, with the occasional pleasant farmers’ market and music fest. But is there a better location than showing defiance to terrorism? Pop a squat on the grass or pull up one of the free folding chairs and gaze fearlessly up at the Nation’s Tallest Building. The view is unbeatable.
