About Brick of Chicago Tours: Chicago is a city built out of brick, of course, along with stone, wood, glass, and steel.
But Chicago is also built of so much more: It is built of history, people, stories, policy, and fashions, marvels of engineering and forces of nature.
On a Brick of Chicago neighborhood walking tour, you’ll learn how all of these elements come together to make Chicago one of the most interesting and dynamic cities in the world. Afterwards, you’ll never look at the built world (or the humble brick) the same way again!
