The Palmer Mansion, constructed 1882–1885 at 1350 N. Lake Shore Drive, was once the largest private residence in Chicago, Illinois, located in the Near North Side neighborhood and facing Lake Michigan. It was designed by architects Henry Ives Cobb and Charles Sumner Frost of the firm Cobb and Frost and built for Bertha and Potter Palmer. Palmer was a prominent Chicago businessman who was responsible for much of the development of State Street. The construction of the Palmer Mansion on Lake Shore Drive established the "Gold Coast" neighborhood, still one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the city. The mansion was demolished in 1950.HistoryConstructionAt the time of the construction of the mansion, Potter Palmer was already responsible for much of the development of State Street. After the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the buildings on State Street were destroyed, and Palmer was yet again responsible for its redevelopment. Construction on the mansion began in 1882, and its exterior work was completed in 1883. However, interior decoration would continue for another two years before the building was entirely complete.Henry Ives Cobb and Charles Frost were chosen as the architects for the mansion. The interiors were completed under the direction of architect Joseph Lyman Silsbee. John Newquist, who had already worked with Palmer on numerous other constructions, was chosen as the contractor and stair constructer. Although it was originally budgeted at $90,000, after five years of construction, the mansion would cost the Palmers more than a million dollars.

The James Charnley Residence is located in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood, at 1365 North Astor Street. The house is now called the Charnley–Persky House and is operated as a museum and organization headquarters by The Society of Architectural Historians (SAH). An Adler & Sullivan design, the townhouse is the work of Louis Sullivan and a young Frank Lloyd Wright, who was a junior draftsman in Sullivan's office at the time. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.The house was completed in 1892 for Charnley, a Chicago lumberman who lived in the house with his family for about a decade. The building was later owned by members of the Waller family, who invested in real estate. The house was purchased by the architectural firm of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill in 1986 and subsequently restored. Seymour Persky purchased the house in 1995 and donated it to the SAH who renamed the building to the Charnley–Persky House to honor their benefactor.The plain brick facade with simple ornamentation was quite different from other houses on the Gold Coast, but the interior is distinguished by rich ornamentation that is typical of Sullivan's work.
Konsulat Generalny Polski w Chicago, Konsulat Generalny Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej w Chicago, założony w 1920, jest jednym z trzech konsulatów generalnych w Stanach Zjednoczonych.Placówka o wielkim znaczeniu zarówno dla Polski, jak i Polonii w Chicago, gdzie zamieszkuje od 300 tysięcy do miliona obywateli polskiego pochodzenia.Początki29 stycznia 1919 prezydent Woodrow Wilson przesłał na ręce Ignacego Paderewskiego, premiera nowego polskiego rządu, telegram potwierdzający uznanie Polski jako niepodległego państwa. Dziennik "New York Times" poinformował o decyzji prezydenta pierwszostronicowym tytułem głównym "Uznajemy Polskę!" (ang. We Recognize Poland!).Pod koniec października przybył do Waszyngtonu książę Kazimierz Lubomirski z zadaniem otwarcia Poselstwa Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej w stolicy USA, które – w 1929, z okazji 150 rocznicy śmierci Kazimierza Pułaskiego – podniesiono do rangi ambasady. Wcześniej, bo w czerwcu 1919, do Nowego Jorku przypłynął (wraz z gronem 11 współpracowników) Konstanty Buszczyński, który na początku lipca zaczął urzędować jako konsul generalny.Planowano otworzyć też placówki konsularne w Chicago, San Francisco, Pittsburghu i Buffalo. Ostatecznie powstały konsulaty generalne w Nowym Jorku i Chicago, konsulat w Pittsburgu oraz wicekonsulaty w Buffalo i San Francisco. Ten ostatni był placówką tymczasową, utworzoną w związku z reemigracją Polaków, przez Harbin i Władywostok z bolszewickiej Rosji. Po jego likwidacji w styczniu 1921 otwarto konsulat w Detroit.

It is also the parish church of the Archbishop of Chicago.

The Cathedral was dedicated on November 21, 1875.
Kevin Ashtari learned a couple things in the U.S. Navy: how to replace the explosives under the ejection seat of an EA-6B Prowler and how to roast a perfect batch of coffee beans on a gas-powered barbecue grill. Every step he takes to get it from raw green beans into that cup is small-scale, lovingly methodical, and hands-on. He invested in a custom-built 12-kilo roaster from the U.S. Roaster Corporation that takes up one corner of the space. "I was looking for a manual roaster without a computer," he says. Every day or two he roasts a new, small batch. Asado Coffee Roasters
