In the sunrise shadow of the Loop, the West Loop has always been its Rodney Dangerfield uncle. And indeed it does get no respect; few know that events here in 1886 were the start of May Day commemorations the world over. Its many workaday neighborhoods have been home to scores of immigrants, notably Greeks. Its industrial blocks have supplied Chicago’s best restaurants for generations, and amidst the rabble you can still find some stunning 1880s homes as well as the professional home of the richest woman in America.
