Favorite thing: An interesting example of architectural resurrection. In order to create a suitable emporium to sell housewares and furniture, Bloomingdale's gutted the old Medinah Temple building - the Shriners' Hall, which was also used by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra as a performance and recording space. There are still plenty of splendic architectural details inside and out that make this "Eclectic Moorish" style building fascinating to explore.

600 N. Wabash, in River North
