Urban environments and the automobile may not always get along, but there’s no doubt that over the past century cars have had a massive influence on the design and vibrancy of America’s great cities. While we normally have a traditional music video to start our week off – typically one in which cars play a pivotal role – today I thought a good way to kick things off would be this amazing video where one of the world’s most underrated cities partakes in the lead and cars play a secondary role.
Chicago is one of my favorite cities and this video by Chris Pritchard lovingly looks at its skyline, its roads, its beaches and its people, all in hummingbird time. It’s truly beautiful and mesmerizing. Check it out after the jump.
