A Drone Flew High Above Chicago And Caught Illinois’ Most Populated City Looking Nearly Uninhabited
Outstanding drone footage of Illinois’ most populated city during the current lockdown order shows an uninhabited Chicago, which is an unexpected sight. The Windy City has come to a standstill and looks completely barren in these aerial images of the city, which used to be crowded at all hours of the day and night.
From empty streets to closed parks, ghosted sidewalks to seemingly abandoned attractions, the city of Chicago is nothing like it used to be, and this footage proves it. The only vehicles on the road are mostly those of essential workers and those who go outside do so once a day for exercise or to walk the dog. It really is an entirely different world for many folks. Scroll on to see it for yourself.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Uninhabited Chicago looks somewhat enticing, but Illinois residents are still being asked to stay home as much as possible at the time of this writing. If you have photos of your town looking abandoned or uninhabited, send them our way via the comments below.
