Sure, I can find some pest grasshoppers in a city park, but I'll never find wild organisms on the 26th floor bar on a hotel.

Still, it's a nice view of the ballfield, if you are into that sort of thing.

Suddenly a visitor alights on the opposite side of the glass. Is it a stonefly? A caddisfly? I'm not sure, but it probably emerged from the nearby Mississippi River (seen at the left corner of the pic with the ballfield), then caught a nice breeze upward. It makes me want to study aerial plankton.

Short/absent cerci, really long antennae, and it doesn't look like it was crammed in a cigar tube. I'd say Trichoptera/Caddisfly. The real marker is the number of tarsal segments - Trichoptera have 5; Plecoptera have 4.
