The Plaza Hotel, near Lincoln Park in Chicago, no longer exists. But it is remembered because that’s where ‘Abdu’l-Baha stayed during his first visit to Chicago in May 1912. Many of the Chicago Baha’is would look for excuses to “hang out” during the day, crowing the salon. So, he gathered them up and would walk them across to Lincoln Park to sit on the benches there and talk. And one day they all went to Lincoln Park Zoo together.
