helps to know that almost all the east-west ones are named after presidents!

South Water should be on here. It's in between lake and wacker just off michigan.
Mar 9th, 2010 at 01:47 GMT
I agree. South Water street isn't very long, but it's a legitimate street in the Loop.

Quincy? Calhoun? Marble? Court? Couch? Arcade? South Water? Beaubein? Haddock? Benton? Federal? Financial? Plymouth?

Sorry didn't read where you said "major streets." Still South Water should probably be included. Stetson though isn't really a major street.
Mar 9th, 2010 at 16:10 GMT
Okay, I added South Water Street. Likewise, Stetson is reasonably wide, has several lanes, whereas streets like Arcade or Couch aren't much more than alleys. Thanks for the help.

If you are doing "Downtown," you could extend your scope to Chicago Avenue or Oak Street on the North and Balbo/Polk on the south. You could also include Orleans and McClurg and St Clair.

^^ Yeah, I considered that. But then how to decide where to stop - Chicago, Division, etc? So I chose to go with more easily delineated borders.

hey tex...if your parameters were within the loop, which it says on your description, perhaps you don't know that the loop's boundaries are Lake, Wabash, Van Buren and Wells. That nixes anything outside that border, i.e., Columbus, Michigan, Congress, etc. So just be more specific on your description. You can't say "within Chicago's downtown loop" and then give the boundaries you did...those aren't in the loop, newcomer.

I have to agree with @bedfordfalls. Your quiz is either asking for streets in the loop or streets within the borders that you laid out in the description. It took me forever to get LSD because I don't think of that as a downtown street.

Alright, I changed it to "central downtown area".

It seemed like you had to work out some kinks but this quiz rocks now!
