Crack! A roaring cheer muffles the ecstatic cry of the announcer?s amplified voice. The entire city block erupts in joy as a ball drops into the asphalt of West Waveland Avenue. Welcome to Wrigley field, one of the oldest ballparks in the country. Now you?re in Chicago, home to some of America?s biggest baseball fans, its tallest building and its deepest deep-dish pizza.

Chicago is the most active city, as well as the center of the Midwest. Hop on Lake Shore Drive and watch as this glistening waterside metropolis unfolds before your eyes. From the Art Institute at Grant Park to the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Science (home to Sue, the city?s beloved Tyrannosaurus Rex) to the architectural oasis of the Illinois Institute of Technology campus and Oak Park, Chicago is a world known cultural capital.

All these sites are clearly marked and indexed on the STREETWISE® Chicago city map. Also included are an enlarged detailed map of the downtown, an area map that includes the major routes and surrounding towns of Chicago and a map of the Metra system.

Our pocket size map of Chicago is laminated for durability and accordion folding for effortless use. The STREETWISE® Chicago map is one of many detailed and easy-to-read city street maps designed and published by STREETWISE®. Buy your STREETWISE® Chicago map today and you too can navigate Chicago, Illinios like a native. For a larger selection of our detailed travel maps simply type STREETWISE MAPS into the search bar.

L'autore: STREETWISE® is the first map to be designed with modern graphics and is the originator of the laminated, accordion-fold map format. We?ve set the standard that every map company has imitated but never duplicated. Our mission is to make you feel comfortable, to make you feel safe in a place where you?ve never been before and to enable you to experience a familiar place more fully.

The company was founded in 1984 by Michael Brown, who had been in international publishing for many years, setting up subsidiaries for textbook publishers. In the 1970?s, Brown traveled extensively throughout Africa, India, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Brown would take a large paper map, cut out the city center, folded it up and slip it into his pocket, thus preventing him from looking like a tourist in areas where discretion is the better part of travel. This was his tool for surviving.

After many years on the road, Brown settled back in New York and decided to start his own business, based on the adaptations he had made to maps in his travels. His goal was to give someone the ability to navigate easily in unfamiliar terrain.

He started with a new map format: the accordion fold. Such a simple idea, but at the time it was revolutionary. No more struggling to fold an awkward, oversized paper map. This new format would enable the user to blend in like a native, instead of stick out like a tourist. Brown then added lamination to ensure that the map would be a lasting tool.

More important than the format was the design of the map itself. It had to be a map that not only succeeded above and beyond any map he had used, but was esthetically appealing as well. The look of it had to be as striking as the functionality. Color was introduced in a way that was never seen before in a map - vivid purple for water, soothing gray for the background of street grids, gold to highlight elements of the map. Clarity, conciseness and convenience in a very stylish package.

Building the business was a 24 hour job. Brown sold the maps during the day, zipping around Manhattan making deliveries on his Harley Davidson. At night he packed the orders and did the design work. More titles were added, each title requiring months of research and design.

Today, STREETWISE® produces over 130 titles for major destinations, regions and countries throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Europe, the United Kingdom and Asia. We have grown from the back of a motorcycle to selling millions of maps around the world.

Yet each title is still painstakingly researched and updated. STREETWISE® is one of the only, if not THE only map company that conducts research by walking or driving an area to ensure accuracy. After all, what good is the map if what you hold in your hands doesn?t match what you see on the street sign? This lengthy fact checking results in superior accuracy; in effect, we?ve done the work, now you have the adventure.

In the end, it?s not about the map, it?s about getting out and finding your own authentic experience wherever you go. It?s about being in a city or a region and discovering things that you never thought you would find. You can do this if you have confidence and you have confidence if you have a great map. STREETWISE® is the great map that you need.
