Lake Shore Drive renamed


Chicago's Lake Shore Drive, now Jean Baptiste Point DuSable Lake Shore Drive. Creative Commons photo. 

A footnote to Illuminatus!: The Black Mass scene takes place in "elegant apartment, high above Lake Shore Drive."

Lake Shore Drive has now been renamed Jean Baptiste Point DuSable Lake Shore Drive, in honor of an early pioneer. And if it helps you better visualize the scene from the book, see the above photo.
