Kennedy Sidestep Part 3: Almost Norwood Park

IMG_7953

Yeah so according to the city of Chicago's official neighborhood map this isn't Norwood Park. But then again the same map says that the second picture in this series wasn't Jefferson Park and you saw the light pole banners for yourselves. Which just goes to show you how fluid the neighborhood definitions are around here. I was gonna get into all the little interesting details about N.P. like how John Wayne Gacy lived there, but I'm at a loss for creativity right now. So just go to the wikipedia entry I was gonna plagiarize anyway: here.

Oh and I just remembered to mention that I have a photo featured today on my local National Public Radio station's website! They do a kind of collective daily photo thing for Chicago which is pretty cool. People submit shots to their flickr pool, and they pick one to show every day. They chose the one from Rosehill Cemetery I posted here.

Great series ... before I moved away I would occasionally take this route the opposite way. Parts of it definitely make you feel like you've stepped back to the 50's/60's.

That row of sevens is something I never got in Las Vegas last weekend. You'd think I'd know better and not get taken to the cleaners. But not this one.
