Drove to Chicago / All Things Know, All Things Know
Appearances often deceive, but, in one respect at least, the visitor’s first impression of Chicago is likely to be correct: this is a city buzzing with life, humming with prosperity, sparkling with new buildings, new sculptures, new parks, and generally exuding vitality.
You know, I gotta say, Chicagoans past and present are more passionate about their town than any other group of city-dwellers I’ve met. (And there are a lot of Bay Area zealots here in SF, so that’s saying something.)
Alas, if only it wasn’t THE COLDEST PLACE ON EARTH in the winter.
