The John Hancock Center


The John Hancock Center
Джон Хэнкок-центр (небоскреб в Чикаго). В течение многих лет самый высокий небоскреб в Чикаго (100 этажей). С него открывается вид на весь город и часть его пригородов. Назван в честь одного из деятелей Американской революции, чья подпись под Декларацией независимости равна почти пяти дюймам. Отсюда в разговорной речи "John Hancock"—роспись (чья-либо), подпись под документом.
