Chicago Sights



Printers Row Review

Bounded by Congress Parkway on the north, Polk Street on the south, Plymouth Court to the east, and the Chicago River to the west, this district fell into disrepair in the 1960s, but a neighborhood resurgence began in the late 1970s. You can still see examples of buildings by the group that represented the First Chicago School of Architecture (including Louis Sullivan), as well as Dearborn Station, a Romanesque Revival–style structure that was once the city's main passenger train hub. These days this section of town is best known for the Printers Row Lit Fest, a weekend-long literary celebration held each June.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
