Quincy: Not just nice, but this nice

An ancient Greek once said, "No man loves his city because it is great, but because it is his."  That's true as far as it goes, but many of us from the Gem City on the banks of the Mississippi River might perhaps disagree with him.

Writing in the Quincy Herald-Whig, Maggie Menderski recently recounted a recent visit of two friends to Quincy:
Their social media message about Quincy was just as clear as mine had been about New York: We're here. This may be small, but it's beautiful.
Halfway through the evening my best friend looked at me and said, "You told me this place was nice. You didn't tell me it was this nice."
Have a quick read and learn part of what makes my hometown great.
