        to be honest. recently i moved from jersey to chicago, however i decided to stay in school in jersey, so i don’t have much time in between my breaks to explore the city- i wish i did

        Perhaps another time will allow to take in whatever interests you in Chicago–the art, museums, food–or just the lake shore.

    I love Chicago, Eva! I love these pictures, Eva! Just a peek at the lake in the top two. Were you just there?

      Hi Leslie! Yes I was just in Chicago–due to my daughter’s travel plans–and south of it in Palos Park area. I’ll try to post a few more photos for fun. Do you also love Vienna Red Hots?

        Yes. …and Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears and (don’t tell my son) watch many of the White Sox games and son had transplant at Northwestern and visited Grandmother for years in Wilmette. Lakeshore Drive and the lake and the Art Museum and the Museum Science and Industry and Field Museum. I pick up history books on Chicago and read them. I think it has to do with the time I spent with my Grandmother. Oh! Riding the EL. Sorry, but I have a soft spot for that place.

        Hi Leslie! No need to apologize. Sounds like Chicago is a sort of guilty pleasure for you. I am curious about your reference to reading books on Chicago. I’ve heard that the very very early history of the city is full of strange and wonderful extreme personalities. Is there any book you might recommend that deals with the time BEFORE the great fire?

        My favorite, so far, that deals with early history is titled “Chicago The History Of Its Reputation” by Lloyd Lewis and henry Justin Smith. The copywright on this book is 1929 and published by Harcourt, Brace and Company. I happened to luck into a copy of it at a used bookstore we have here.

        The book mentioned above starts with history of the area around 1804. So it covers 1804 to 1927 or 1928.

        Thank you for the recommended book read, Leslie. Wow, 1929!! Old books can be so full of great things. Grins!!!

    I love the lines and perspective in these photographs. Chicago is, in my humble midwestern opinion, one of the most beautiful cities in the US.

    • February 24, 2010 at 7:04 pm

      Hi breetsuts–Chicago does have it’s ‘beauty marks’–and–its share of poverty stricken areas as well. Down in the Loop area there’s a lot to enjoy.
