A Chicago landmark in disrepair

Success - Article sent! close

What is happening to the iconic Marshall Field clocks? Has anyone noticed how they have deteriorated since Macy's has come to State Street? The numbers are faded and almost unreadable. The clocks are not running so they no longer keep time. Sadly, we have gone from, "Give the lady what she wants" to, "A New York state of mind." It is interesting to compare the perfect condition of the clock on Macy's in New York when the Thanksgiving Day Parade was shown on television. It looks like another Chicago landmark will soon disappear.
