A Unique View from the Top of the John Hancock Antennas

Chicago 360 has an impressive view 1,030 feet above Michigan Ave. Add on a few extra floors and the massive 350 foot tall antennas and you suddenly have a view from 1,500. A view ironworker Danny Drozd captured for all of us.

The South Loop resident strapped a GoPro camera to his helmet on August 6 as he prepped the Hancock’s west antenna for partial dismantlement. The 12 minute video offers some incredible views of the city and gives us a glimpse into the stead footwork needed when you’re standing on the tip of Chicago’s fourth tallest building. 

The YouTube video has been almost 190,000 times and in an interview with Redeye, Drozd said he plans to post more videos when things settle down.
