CHICAGO (CBS) — Former President and former Kenwood neighborhood resident Barack Obama and a surprise visit to Chicago on Friday.


Mr. Obama dropped in to see the progress being made at the future Obama Presidential Center in Jackson Park. He chatted with construction crews who have been busy at work laying the center’s massive concrete foundation.


“I will come back periodically. I might even come here during the winter to check on progress,” Mr. Obama said in a remark that got a laugh.
