Women's Words Chicago.....

Chicago's downtown seems to constitute, all in all, the best-looking twentieth-century city, the city where contemporary technique has best been matched by artistry, intelligence, and comparitively moderated greed. No doubt about it, if style were the one gauge, Chicago would be among the greatest of all the cities of the world.
