Oprah Gets a Street
Its tough to get something for the person who has everything but Oprah Winfrey got something from Chicago she doesn't have. She has her own street, 'Oprah Winfrey Way'. In one of his last official acts as mayor, Richard Daley went to her studio to rename a street outside the Harpo Productions office where she tapes her show. She's widely credited for transforming that once gritty part of Chicago into a thriving neighborhood. Oprah is just one of a thousand celebrities and religious leaders who have streets named after them in Chicago.
