Where in the World — Bitting

Tori, Becca and Kurt Bitting of Buda took the train to Chicago at the end of their summer break. Holding copies of the BCR, they are pictured here sitting 1,353 feet above the busy Chicago streets in one of the glasses boxes called “The Ledge” on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower. The boxes, that extend 4.3 feet off the side of the building, were added in 1974 and were inspired by all of the forehead prints left on the glass by visitors.
