It's that time of year and like many other websites, tv stations, newspapers and blogs, we're going to take a look back at some of the most important and biggest stories of 2011.
#11 - Ping Tom Park Expands North
Often overlooked, Ping Tom Park continues to get rave reviews. Back in September we posted about the new addition to the park just North of 18th street. While many forget about this spot (since it's on the fringe of what many consider the South Loop), it truly is a special public space that offers serene places to relax and some amazing views of the city.
