The Northwest Tower is a well known landmark in Chicago. You can see it on the horizon as you come up from the subway on the Blue Line. Once you see it, you know that you have reached Wicker Park. It was built in 1928 and in the 1980’s became known as the Coyote building because the artists who were living there thought it resembled a howling coyote– thus how they got the name for the Around The Coyote Arts festival.
