South Loop and Near South Side Professional Review and Guide
"Once hemmed in by railroads, the South Loop and Near South Side have a history as varied as any in the city. These were the first areas settled—somewhat disastrously—by whites, and later were home to Chicago’s elite. Industry and vice came later, the latter in extraordinary proportions. Today the area is a fast-growing, upscale residential neighborhood that combines old and new buildings in ways that would surprise anyone who lived here in the past."
--Ryan Ver Berkmoes, Walking Chicago (Wilderness Press).
