Daley’proposal for a park costing $150 million “at no cost to taxpayers” ended up with a price tag that topped $490 million, including at least $95 million in tax money. Once it was built, the city found it did not even have enough money to operate the park.

Comment: History will reflect that Daley bankrupted Chicago. Nobody did more harm to a major American city since Sherman burned down Atlanta.
