Mike Schacht is one of Chicago’s best photographers and web designers. Check out more of his work at his website.
Chi-Town is the BEST town!
What a fuckin shit hole.
That "Chicago Code" is a great show!
The real question is, how did he get some many pictures of Chicago before someone stole his camera?
there are plenty of people walking around chicago with very nice cameras all the time. don't judge before you know. stuff gets stolen around here less than you think.
If you notice, he was in and around the loop…nice play to walk around and gawk. Didn't see him traipsing southside.
Yea I would think one could get much better photos around Chicago.
wow just kick the Cubs fans while they're down
Also you'd think he'd want to feature parts of Chicago found outside the 'gray' and 'brown' parts of the color wheel. #10 for example…
#10 is a banksy it needs to be included.
Doubtful it was Banksy. His efforts include a political statement.
http://chicagoist.com/2010/05/10/banksy_in_chicag… good job on the assumption tho… fucktard. CHICAGO BABY!!!!
I'll offer the Mayor a thousand dollars to look the other way. Alright then, one hundred. Deal!
crappy pizza and getting shot? chicago can suck my spotty dick.
NY pizza FTW
If you're a 5 year old girl.
I'm sure there are plenty on non-5 year old girls in the 8.4 million residents of NYC that would agree with LIF on this, but nice try.
obviously a dirty new yorker speaking
Dude has talent. Great Pix
Documented evidence that it really is a shithole.
anyone that says chicago is a shithole is an idiot. all the crime happens in two neighborhoods. greatest city in the world….and ive been to most of them
You've been to most of the cities in the world? Fuck you, you're lying. But Chi-Town kicks ass, and no, I'm not from there.
well…that was nothing special.
Chive, what next? Detroit?
Totally amazing!!!! A bunch of bad pics of a bunch of old buildings. Yayyy I can die happy now!!
Nice shots of downtown. #11, a good Banksy…not sure if it's still there or not.
Correction…..it should be titled "The Once great city of Chicago"…no longer.

I've never been to Chi-Town so I can't say, but the pictures did not inspire me to plan a trip anytime soon.
Not the greatest pictures in my opinion, but still the greatest city in world nonetheless.
You have got to be shitting me! Chicago is in no way, shape or form a better city than NY.
BTW…this is coming from someone who lives on the west coast and has been to both cities more than once.
NY sucks its full loud mouth douche bags who think their tough and the streets are filled with trash.
I'd mark that up as dreary. How about a South Pacific post to knock off the bleakness?
Is that a real Banksy?
Hey, you should photoshop the shit out of these some more.
I work in Chicago. When ice forms in the river, you know it's freaking cold!!! #15
Love Chicago, love photography, but these weren't doin' it for me. Not one pic of Wrigley, Navy Pier, Sears Tower, St Patty's day green Chicago river, Millenium Park, The Bean, etc etc. I mean I know all cities have alleys and garbage cans…..
I think he was going for a depressing mood with these pics.
No, New York doesn't have alleys. They throw their garbage on the sidewalk, but Chicago is the shithole?
I'm SUPER glad there isn't one picture of the Bean or the green River or any other thing that EVERYONE that visits Chicago takes a picture of!! I used to live there and I miss it like crazy so it's nice to see pictures or the REAL Chicago, even if these are all downtown:)
…not one picture of #10 exists in this list, depicting the Sears Tower… What a shame.
I felt like I needed to check if my wallet had been lifted while viewing these pics. I'll stay away, thanks.
Sigh, my home sweet home! These photos make me feel like I'm still right there.
