This shot was taken by Michael Kardas from the 19th floor of Optima Old Orchard Woods in Skokie. The Edens Expressway, Niles North High School and Westfield Old Orchard Shopping Center are in the foreground. In the center distance (four miles away) you see the Baha’i House of Worship in Wilmette, and Lake Michigan.
We’d previously posted a view of the skyline from Optima Old Orchard. The view to the west is forest preserve that seems to extend to the horizon.
