Uptown has changed a lot. I have neighbors who tell me about drug deals and police shootouts five or six years ago on my street. Now it's a pretty quiet street though, and most of the buildings in that picture are condos (they were probably all vacant when you lived there).I lived in the "Kenmore Corridor" in Uptown (can't remember the cross street). Definitely a "interesting" neighborhood 14 years ago. Always love seeing Chicago photos.
Yeah, I'm aware of that. I'll get down there and take pictures eventually. I know that the Central Area Plan (or maybe it was Metropolis 2020) proposed burying the IC. Unfortunatly there aren't any official plans to do anything with LSD. That's the worst road in the city and it has to go.Hey, you think Lake Shore Drive cuts through parks on the North Side? Take a look sometime at how Lake Shore Drive (AND the Illinois Central Railroad) completely separates Burnham Park from neighborhoods on the South Side!
