Kennedy Sidestep Part 3: Almost Norwood Park
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.
