Normally today would be my “A Million Times” post where I talk about buildings we’ve walked by a million times and never noticed.
But in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I asked my Twitter and Facebook friends to give me the things about Chicago that they’re thankful for. There are a lot of answers, Chicago is obviously awesome, but take your time and read them all. They’re surprisingly different and varied.
Me you ask? What am I thankful for?
I’m thankful for a quiet subway ride in the mornings (mostly quiet). I’m thankful for Chicago being a pretty friendly bike city. I’m thankful for quiet streets off of main thoroughfares. I’m just thankful. Ok, here we go:
@rogerthaxton – FOOD!!!
@julenemccoy - the El – it gets me to work every day and it’s over 100 years old
@mellyfoley – For starters. The weather. No snow or cold as of yet. It’s marvelous.
@absolutkatydid – The insanely good ethnic food! Sultan’s Market, Ras Dashen and Hema’s Kitchen (Devon) to name but a few.
@newetiquette – Cheap produce stores, abundant taquerias, tree-lined streets, late night CTA service, the Steppenwolf, the lake
@rolandsghost – Garfield Park Conservatory
@my_veg_blog – The pedway! I love that I can get out and walk around at lunch when the weather is bad & stay warm on the way to the train. (This seems like an especially good one, no?)
