Its lyric revelling in the city's brutal side infuriated Chicago chauvinists, but reads fresh and sharp and true to this day. To accommodate rapid population growth and demand for better sanitation, the city improved its infrastructure. Departures occur approximately every 15 minutes from the lower pedestrian tunnel level of Terminal 2. Clark Street, N. Kennedy Expressway I as it heads into the city.

Yet the city had its hooks in too early for me ever to wriggle free. From its opening salvo there is nothing continental about Augie March: "I am an American, Chicago born — Chicago, that somber city — and go at things as I have taught myself, free-style, and will make the record in my own way … " Rarely has a voice declared itself with such sheer oomph — it's the 20th-century version of "Call me Ishmael". But the novel is never a mere tract, especially in its riveting study of how an apparently strong and decent man becomes both a villain and a victim. In the south, beginning at 8th, most east-west streets are numbered consecutively, and only north-south streets are named.

Madison St. On release, he is reunited with Jade, only for catastrophe to strike a second time. Allow plenty of time for traffic, which is always a factor in getting around greater Chicago. Nearby restaurants offer a variety of cuisines to savor. Its descriptions of Chicago are even better than Bellow's, and for its prose alone it should live as long as any of the books on this list.
