From people who love ice fishing or are dedicated to improving the lives of neighborhood kids, Jay Shefsky tells some of Chicago's best stories. This series shines a spotlight on ordinary people who do extraordinary things from pursuing unusual passions, to finding innovative ways to meet daunting challenges, to practicing unique art forms these individuals make Chicago a lively, interesting, and fun place to live. You'll meet a beehive rescuer, the Zamboni driver at Maggie Daley Park's Ice Skating Ribbon, a woman who wallpapered her home with broken glass, a family who raises goats, a teen YouTube sensation, an owl photographer, an ex-convict turned yoga teacher, and a man who reconstructed a working model of Abraham Lincoln's funeral train. And many more.
The WTTW presentation of Jay's Chicago is made possible, in part, by the Steve and Delores Sarovich Foundation.
