Near North Side (Chicago), IL

photo of Washington Square Park, Chicago, ILBecause Chicago is such a big city, people often assume that the areas in and around downtown must be little more than skyscrapers and busy streets. But this couldn't be further from the truth, as Chicago has a lot of open space, even in the center of the city. One of the nicest spots is shown in this photo, which was taken in November 2008. It gives a view of Washington Square Park in the Near North Side section of the city. It is only a few blocks from downtown, but is a quiet and attractive oasis that is also surrounded by some stunning architecture.
