River North views – carriages, condos, reality TV

River North trafficRiver North, as we explained during our recent week focusing on the area, is a neighborhood of contrasts – high-end housing, art galleries and fine dining in some sections, touristy crap and cheesy bars in others. That incongruity leads to lots of scenes like this one, at the corner of Superior and Orleans streets at 12:30 p.m. today.

We’ve never thought much about the condo building pictured here behind the horse-drawn carriage, but we were struck today by how great the southeast skyline views must be from those curving balconies. The view of the satelite TV dishes in Y-formation on the building’s balconies aren’t quite as scenic from the street (they’re small, so click for the larger image to get a look).
