Honorary Chicago
Written By Honorary Chicago

Chicago's honorary brown signs are commemorative, co-names for many streets in the City of Chicago. They remind locals and tourists of the contributions of the famous and the obscure who have made a difference in Chicago and in the world. Honorary Chicago has collected the largest and most comprehensive dataset of honorary street names, locations, and biographies.

Linda has given a 360 degree tour of Chicago at the Mid-America Club since 2018. Her first book, The Honorary Chicago Guidebook, is a Michigan Avenue walking tour of the biographies behind Chicago's brown honorary street signs.

Linda lives in the Lakeview neighborhood. She has a Masters degree from the University of Chicago.

There are several volumes of A Tour From Atop Featuring: Chicago Architecture, History, Urban Planning, Waterways, Infrastructure, Streetscapes, Public Art, Commerce, Development, and Honorary Signs
