12,000+ shootings in a city, but different stories on every block.
For many Chicagoans, shootings dictate where you should go — and where you shouldn't — in the city.

In case you were wondering if anything is ever going to happen to that bike that's been there for months.
Here's a map of where the city removed hundreds of them from all over the city last year.

My latest feature maps out every major film shoot in Chicago last year. "Parks and Recreation," "Batman v Superman," and "Orange is the New Black" are all covered.

I listened to a lot of Ziggy Stardust while putting this together.

Happy David Bowie Day Eve!

Chicago has all kinds of pretty neon.
We rounded up photos of some of Chicago's best and brightest neon signs.

People living under the Wilson viaduct told me they've lost everything they've owned during past cleanups.

Pretty much the only story about pizza you need to read today.
If you think Chicago pizza is just deep-dish, you know nothing. We're here to help. ;

It's times like this when being a reporter is the greatest job in the world.

I've always wondered why Tim Hortons isn't in Chicago.
