If you want to know what Chicago streetlife sounded like before horn-blaring cabdrivers ruined everything, hop in a carriage for a ride behind the cardinal's Gold Coast mansion.
That's where the click, click, clop of horse hooves gets gently muffled on the city's strangest historic landmark -- the century-old cedar pavers of a wooden alley.
Neighbors are working with their alderman to save the alley from an asphalt burial.
Do you think this interesting little piece of Chicago history is worth saving? Or is it just another place where we throw out our trash?
