“You don’t have to be a history buff to love David Witter's Oldest Chicago. You don’t even have to love Chicago, but surely you will after reading the author's exultant but informative paean and guide to the city’s most enduring places.” —New City
"More than a guidebook, Oldest Chicago presents a new way of looking at the city. It offers a 'lost treasure' map to the city. The next time you explore Chicago—ideally with Oldest Chicago in hand—you will wonder, 'Is that building old?' 'Is this store special?' 'Who sculpted that statue?' 'How many generations of the same family have run this restaurant?' Oldest Chicago will add immeasurably to your enjoyment of the city. It will bring to life many important and delightful places you might have taken for granted . . . and make you aware of others that you never noticed before.” —Greg Borzo, author, The Chicago "L"
