As a lifelong Chicagoan, I've often been curious about the Manhattan Building, the 1891 landmark that's the city's oldest surviving steel frame building. Designed by William Le Baron Jenney, the 16-story historic skyscraper features gorgeous bay windows and a prime view of the Harold Washington Library. Unsurprisingly then, I was pretty excited to see one of the apartments inside and even more excited when I saw Mary and Tom's stunning, art- and book-filled home.
