  • The addresses used by the buildings on this corner can be confusing. Both 1000 Lake Shore Drive and 1000 Lake Shore Plaza are part of the same property. 1000 Lake Shore Drive has the city legal address of 1002-1010 North Lake Shore Drive, but the county legal address of 1000-1010 North Lake Shore Drive. 1000 Lake Shore Plaza has the city legal address of 130 East Oak Street and the county legal address of 1000 North Lake Shore Drive.
  • This was formerly the location of the Harold and Edith McCormick mansion. Harold was the son of Cyrus McCormick. Edith was the daughter of John D. Rockefeller. Their mansion had a Persian rug once used by Peter the Great, gold dishes that Napoleon gave to his sister. According to the Chicago Tribune, even the dog had a matching diamond collar and tiara set that cost a million dollars. It was here in 1928 that Lake Shore Drive's last great society ball was held.
