in 1884 and built the following year, the building became known as
the world’s first modern skyscraper. It was supported by a revolutionary steel

greater weight of traditional masonry construction. The Home Insurance
Building stood until 1931, when it was demolished.

Now this is pretty awesome. Watch the patterns in the fog behind that building (viewed from the John Hancock Center, Chicago). You can make out a swirling, alternating vortex pattern. The fog is defining a Von Karman vortex pattern.
Puedes llevarte todo lo que tengo.
Puedes romper todo lo que soy, como si estuviera hecha de cristal.
Como si estuviera hecha de papel.
Ve e intenta echarme abajo,
Que me elevaré desde el suelo,
como un rascacielos
