Live From Buena Park

UU reader "Eye In The Sky" clued us in on a link to this live webcam, showing an aerial view of Buena Park. We aren't sure of the camera's exact location, but maybe one of our clever readers can clue us in. Very cool.


  1. Great. It's pointed right at the empty skyline space that Shiller intends to fill with the her latest taxpayer funded TIF development.

  2. I think it's the highrise on Buena between Clarendan and Broadway' high floor, north east side. Just a guess.

  3. Snd sctuslly truthbearer...Helen's new project isn't in the picture. It would be just to the left. The highrise at the top left is the southeast corner of clarendan and Montrose.

  4. Yeah, it definitely looks like the building on Buena, right at the dead end of Hazel. Looks like this is the name: Belmont Tower Apartments, 833 W Buena Ave Chicago, IL

  5. I am the eye in the sky
    Looking at you, I can read your mind
    I am the maker of rules
    Dealing with fools, I can cheat you blind
    And I don't need to see any more to know that
    I can read your mind

    Don't leave false illusions behind
    Don't cry, I ain't changing my mind
    So find another fool like before
    Cause I ain't gonna live anymore believing
    Some of the lies while
    all of the signs are deceiving

  6. I want to change my guess... I think it's about 150 ft high which would make it 14th or 15th floor. I think the angle is less steep than I originally thought so I want to change that to northwest corner.

  7. Oh my, who's the Alan Parsons Project fan? (cute)

  8. I've seen 'cruise ship cams' before, tracking ships throughout the globe.....I wonder what the intent of this one is?
    I would love to see a 'Live from the 46th Ward Office' cam!
    Not sure what we'd see?......

  9. Bradley you are right. Helen's project area is just to the left. Sorry for the error.

  10. That is a Group Fox building at 833 West Buena, not Belmont Tower. The building doesn't have a name.

  11. Looks to me like it points toward Montrose and Broadway
