IT'S A TREAT TO BEAT THE HEAT

July 19, 1959

Chicago, according to the old song, is the town where the fella saw a man who danced with his wife. Chicago is also noted for its bizarre weather. In winter a bitter wind can blow off Lake Michigan; in summer the city can heat up like a jalopy's radiator. But where there's heat there's a way to beat it, as these 12 hot-weather escape hatches photographed from a helicopter high over Chicagoland during an hour's tour on a hot and humid July 4th reveal.
