      EVENT DETAILS
      The All-Indoor Chicago Pedway Tour

      Your first question might be: what is the Chicago Pedway anyway? My answer: The Pedway is the unsung hero of Chicago and one of my best friends. (I know, I’m a Pedway nerd.) The official answer is that it’s a series of hallways and walkways that keep Chicagoans from having to go outside in extreme weather. BRILLIANCE! The Chicago Pedway leads us under, through and over some of Chicago’s best buildings, but we’re seeing them all from inside, meandering through some of the great building lobbies of Chicago. We’ll talk about architecture and history, but we’ll focus on the Pedway too. We’ll talk about the symbol, the map, future plans and figure out how exactly we’re supposed to use this thing! We get great lobbies in City Hall (one of my favorites), we'll see spectacular Tiffany mosaic in Marshall Fields/Macy's and more surprise Tiffany glass in a place you would never expect, the Chicago Pedway is filled with surprises! Chicago Pedway Tour Highlights: City Hall – This 1906 building is one of my favorites. It is PRETTY. And has a bit of a surprise to it. The Thompson Center – A love it or a hate it or both. It can most definitely be both. But I'm a lover.  Marshall Fields – Tiffany glass for days.
