"Secret Spaces Atop Chicago" - Jewelers Building, View Facing North

As the man used to say, "Dis wuz da place." Our Tommy-gun-totting, baby-faced gangster Al Capone owned the speakeasy Stratosphere Club inside the landmark 40-story Jewelry Building designed by Joachim G. Giaver and Frederick P. Dinkelberg. (The showroom space for architect Helmut Jahn is housed inside the gorgeous dome.) The other detail that gets everybody is the monster Otis elevator designed to transport automobiles.
