Michigan Avenue, Chicago: 81 reviews and 128 photos
Designed by William W. Boyington, this water tower, built in 1866-1869, is one of the city's best-known landmarks. It is about the only one to survive the terrible fire in the 1870s. In fact, after that event, locals used it as a reference point. They had almost no others.
