A monument to the printed word in a mid-century modern building just down the street from the el stop. Chicago Main Newsstand carries every periodical you could possibly want for the train ride into the city. Can't you just imagine a Don Draper type stopping by on his way to work? I picked up a copy of the Chicago Tribune and took it down to the beach (a statement that still blows my mind).
located on Chicago Ave between Main and Washington in Evanston, IL.
I disobeyed the moratorium on cameras because I just had to capture that warm golden light. Even just looking at it I can smell the dusty pages. Myopic gets a special mention in Nico Lang's list of 40 Reasons I Love Being a Chicagoan.
located on N. Milwaukee in the Wicker Park neighborhood.
