99% Invisible: Episode 86 - Reversal of Fortune

Unlike other cities that cram you on the sidewalk between looming towers. The Chicago River pushes buildings apart, giving you the opportunity to really take in the city’s glory in glass, steel, and concrete.

"But Chicago’s biggest design achievement isn’t a building at all—it’s the Chicago River itself."
