At Last! Neil Harris’ New Chicago Apartments

      And How to Obtain The Book


The long awaited new Chicago Apartments.




By Megan McKinney


We have been waiting since early last spring for the superb new edition of Chicago ApartmentsA Century and Beyond of Lakefront Luxury,  Neil Harris’ exquisite book with Teri Edelstein. At last, the book has been shipped to selected book stores and online  sources; you will find a list of these suppliers at the end of this article.

What a marvelous opportunity this will be for each of us to take advantage of the continuing lull in outside distractions and to settle in to experience the 2004 book, now expanded with the richness of carefully selected additions.

Although last spring we presented a sampling of some of the new edition’s stunning added buildings, here is another look at several of them.
