a portable city: build your own chicago


You don’t have to be a Rockefeller to build a city. Build Your Own Chicago flat-packs paper versions of Chicago icons, $1.50 or 25 for $36. These mini streetscapes are perfect for artful arrangements on bare mantles or bookshelves and could come in handy for those servants of the Second City particularly prone to homesickness. I’ll be ordering a mini Wrigley Field to slip into my carry-on for long trips. If you’re unsure of your paper-building skills, there are a few free models online for practice. –Katie D.

so detailed – i think i can see a mini blagojevich stealing from city hall…


They need a Boston version – I need a Fenway Park (with Citgo Sign) for my living room!
