Testing Chicago's touted 24-hour downtown

Chicago Loop at night

Kiefer Sutherland had a scheduling conflict, so New Homes Magazine sent Kate Hawley (the poor man’s Jack Bauer) for a 24-hour mission in the Loop.

On a frigid Friday in January, I conducted my own private Looptopia, spending 24 hours eating, drinking, shopping and being entertained within the Loop’s boundaries. […] While I knew there was a chance I’d wander around freezing and bored into the wee hours, I hoped that time would pass with the urgency of the bleeping digital clock from the Fox series “24.”

See how Kate fared in “24: A day in the Loop,” and check out the entire March issue of New Homes, which hits the street on Friday.
