My Chicago

About this feature

"My Chicago" is about real Chicago. Pulitzer Prize winner Mark Konkol goes beyond Second City clichés to take readers to places they otherwise wouldn't go, introduce them to people they otherwise wouldn't meet, hold government accountable, stick up for the little guy and have a lot of fun.
