A "Pisa" Italy in Chicago

One can always find something whimsical in the Chicago area, which is one reason why I love living here. A favorite of mine is in the city, Niles, where you will find the Leaning Tower of Niles. At 94 feet tall, it was built as a utility tower in 1934. It sits across from a Target store and among several restaurants along Touhy Avenue. When guests are visiting, I often take them past the Tower for a good laugh and some photos.
