Message From Chi-Town Review

Dear visitor,

Chi-Town Review is no longer in production.

I created this website as a side-project in January 2013 while a grad student at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern. It was a place to experiment with interactive storytelling and news media production. In early 2015, I decided to halt production of Chi-Town Review and Smartketplace to pursue other avenues.

Chi-Town Review can be revamped someday. For now, the site will serve as a portfolio and display of the kind of journalism and digital storytelling I value. Please continue to enjoy any evergreen content.

Thank you,

Vince Dixon
Creator of Chi-Town Review
