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."
