STATE STREET—

Where Chicago - - NAVIGATE -

Fa­mous for its re­tail stores, State Street is the heart of Chicago’s Loop. Its his­toric build­ings still ex­em­plify three dis­tinct ar­chi­tec­tural pe­ri­ods: the late 19th cen­tury’s Chicago School, the Mer­can­tile Clas­si­cism of the early 20th cen­tury, and the Beaux Arts and Art Deco styles of the World War eras. One block east on Wabash Av­enue, you’ll find “Jew­el­ers Row,” named for its con­cen­tra­tion of jewelry stores. The world’s largest li­brary build­ing, the grandly or­na­mented Harold Wash­ing­ton Li­brary, is also here.
