CHICAGO - DAMEN SILOS

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

For well over a century, the center of the USA's grain trade has been Chicago, and in particular the Chicago Board of Trade.  In the earlier years, when a large proportion of futures contracts was settled with physical delivery, the city became the repository of vast stores of grain.  In this drone video by 60 seconds, you'll get an aerial view of one piece of this infrastructure, largely unneeeded now: the Damen Silos, a now-abandoned grain elevator and storage facility on the outskirts of downtown.
