Chicago Like a Local Blog

Unique perspectives on the city from the people who live here.

Author: Bob Benenson

Bob Benenson is a career journalist who moved to Chicago in 2011, but long regarded it as his second hometown for many years, as his wife Barb grew up in the area and they visited often over the previous 30 years. Bob is passionate about Chicago's often under-appreciated physical beauty, its outstanding built environment, its varied neighborhood life and its cultural vibrancy.

Along with continuing his writing career, Bob has seriously taken up photography - he has a Facebook page titled Bob Benenson's Lake Shore View and his work was featured on Choose Chicago's Instagram page in late September 2014. Professionally, Bob is a communications specialist for FamilyFarmed, a non-profit organization that promotes the Good Food movement, and manages its Good Food on Every Table website. Bob previously had a long tenure as a political journalist at Congressional Quarterly in Washington, D.C.
