Chicago gets a lot of underserved flack as the third largest city in the United States, stuck in the flyover zone between New York and Los Angeles. Still, Chicago always had a few things those towns didn’t: independence, world class Blues musicians, trains that are enjoyable to ride, and a huge sculpture downtown otherwise known as The Bean. Tourists arrive in droves to see it during the warmer months. Once a year, high school seniors use it as a backdrop for graduation photos. Now, the artist, Anish Kapoor, has gone and given New York one too.
