When I first visit a new city, I pore over maps, trying to identify and memorize the geography, locations of major attractions, and the names of the big neighborhoods. Then I turn my attention to the streets. I like the names of Chicago streets: Racine, Wabash, Wacker, Dearborn, La Salle, Lake Shore Drive. It's almost like they were written in a different language than the one we use in New York.

The stacking chairs in the old trading room at the Art Institute are so enigmatic...

The Mercantile Room in the Art Institute is one of my favorite places in that museum. Of course, I have a lot of favorite places in that museum. (The Chagall Windows being another)
