Heads up, dear readers: next week, Curbed Chicago is stepping outside for the first annual CURBED OUTDOORS WEEK. All week long, we'll be focusing on the glory of the great outdoors right inside the city — think fantastic rooftop spaces, hidden alleyways, urban gardens, and secret outdoor spaces that will blow your mind. Of course, your help here is essential. If you've got a great roof deck, a view that's either utopian or ruined by some horrid new building, an insane lawn ornament, or perhaps a hideous balcony your neighbor is using as a storage locker, snap a photo and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll run our favorites all next week.
Dog owners, your help here is even more vital. Because, as part of Curbed Outdoors Week, we'll be looking to settle the question once and for all of the city's BEST DOG RUN. Love your dog run? Nominate it for glory by writing us a short description of what makes it so great and why your dog loves it, too. We'll pit the best against each other next week in a no-holds-barred tournament of dog run greatness. Nominations to email@example.com, please. This will be fun.
