Hit the Streets: Jessica Mlinaric’s New Book Takes Readers on a Scavenger Hunt in 17 Chicago Neighborhoods | app

CHICAGO — Writer and photographer Jessica Mlinaric wants Chicagoans back on the streets.

The last time we heard from her was in 2018 and she was revealing tidbits about Chicago, like where you can sunbathe on a shipwreck in Lake Michigan and where you can ride in the one of Chicago’s only manually operated elevators – full details found in his book “Secret Chicago: A Guide to the Weird, the Wonderful, and the Dark.”
