Lake Michigan’s famed metropolis seems to have it all—and then some. Maybe you’ve come to Chicago to catch a comedy show at Second City, try the famous deep-dish pizza, or take a stroll through Millennium Park and catch your reflection on the mirror finish of the bean, a magnificent sculpture by Indian-born British artist Sir Anish Kapoor.
Maybe you’re a Chicago native who’s walked these streets a million times before. Either way, the beauty that towers above you in Chicago’s magnificent skyscrapers is mirrored by a darkness that lurks below the busy streets. Are you brave enough to peer beneath the surface?
