The 606, the new connection between neighborhoods in North side Chicago, starts to create whole another "dialogues" such as between pedestrians and bikers, joggers and commuters, and even parks and restaurants.

Agora is the name of a group of 106 headless and armless iron sculptures at the south end of Grant Park in Chicago. Designed by Polish artist Magdalena Abakanowicz, they were made in a foundry near Poznan between 2004 and 2006. In 2006, the Chicago Park District brought the work to Chicago as a permanent loan from the Polish Ministry of Culture. Similar installations have been constructed throughout the world, but Agora is among the largest.
