Such an incredible - but well-deserved - honor!

In one of his last official acts as mayor of Chicago, Richard Daley has named the street outside of Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Studios 'Oprah Winfrey Way,' in honor of the talk show queen's work transforming the neighborhood surrounding the building into a safe, thriving area for families and young professionals!

During the ceremony, she was quoted saying:

"Who knew a little colored girl from Kosciusko, MS who grew up on a dirt road would grow up to her name on a street in the greatest city in the world?"

Amazing!

We couldn't be more thrilled for you, gurl!

Congratulations!

    If Oprah says Chicago is the best city in the world, it must be true!
    No, but really, Chicago is an amazing city. I've lived here for over 10 years and have traveled extensively to some of the worlds best nations..and I must say, what Oprah is saying isn't far from the truth. We have our skyscrapers like New York(and for a long time we had the tallest in the world)..we also have a beachfront that covers the entire East side. We have everything that LA and NYC have, but what makes Chicago different is how unpretentious it is. We are a midwestern city that is considered to be the heart of America. Our President chose Chicago as his home for 10+…hmm,what does that tell you? I'll end this comment by saying this:The people of Chicago make the city a wonderful and caring place to live. As the 3rd largest city in the U.S., I would say we are indeed ONE of the greatest cities in the world. That is all. :)
