Favorite street art spot: "Most of the West Loop is spotless, but there's a wall on Green Street just south of Randolph that has a lot of work."

Favorite street art spot: "An alley off Halsted between Cermak and 21st—we've seen stencil work from Ray 'CRO' Noland, Nice One figures, Don't Fret wheat pastes, and amazing tags."

Favorite street art spot: "Near the corner of Milwaukee and Fullerton behind Liberty Bank is a wall, topped with razor wire, that's regularly curated every couple weeks by old-school graffiti writer Flash ABC [Artistic Bombing Crew]."

Favorite street art spot: "In Little Village, walk along 26th Street from Kedzie to Pulaski. Keep your eyes out for work by one of my favorite Chicago street artists, Miguel De Real."
