Taking a tour of the loop of Chicago on the City Transit Authority’s ‘El” train gives you a unique perspective of the architecture of this gorgeous city, especially that in the heart of Chicago’s business district. The tour circles the loop three times while a Chicago Architecture Foundation docent explains the architectural details of the buildings with a brief history of each.
