DescriptionView from the air looking down upon Block 37, a city block bounded by West Randolph Street, North State Street, West Washington Street and North Dearborn Street. The name Block 37 refers to the block's position in James Thompson's 1830 plat of Chicago. The block was cleared in 1989 to make way for new development, but remained vacant for many years afterwards. New developments - 22 West Washington and 108 North State Street - now occupy this block. The Macy's State Street store (Marshall Field's at the time of the photograph) is on the right, across from Block 37.
