It’s hard to imagine what Chicago’s downtown would look like without the Loop, and the elevated train tracks that define it. A new book out this week explores the little-known history of the Loop and how it shaped the city, both geographically and culturally.

Patrick Reardon, the author of “”The Loop — The L Tracks That Shaped and Saved Chicago”” is a Chicago native and worked as a reporter at the Chicago Tribune for 32 years.
He joined WGN Weekend Morning News to talk about his new book that makes its debut on Thanksgiving day.
