Chicago summer in time-lapse images

Those of us who live in Chicago are quick to admit that there are few things more wonderful than summer in the city. A year ago, Josh Kalven, editor of Progress Illinois, set out to capture everything that’s great about the Windy City in the summertime. The result is a charming four-minute time lapse video of everything summer-wonderful around here, from Chicago’s endless beaches to the popular Big Star Tacos in Wicker Park. Watching it will make you fall in love with this city all over again, set to a soundtrack of “No One Does It Like You” by Department of Eagles. Enjoy, and don’t forget to take advantage of all this amazing Chicago summer has to offer!
