Strolling the city

Chicago is a sprawly town. There are pros and cons to this, but one of its delights is that you can live here for decades and know every doorway of one stretch of street and still be clueless about the supercool place a few miles down the road. Writer John Greenfield has been setting out to travel several streets from tip to toe, and he’s got a fascinating series of articles complete with pictures. I first found his exploration of Pulaski, a quintessential Chicago street that I spend lots of time on. He’s also hoofed Lawrence, MLK Drive, 79th, 63rd, Grand (huge Radio Flyer and Mr. Bendo!), Halsted, Kedzie, Archer and Belmont.

Check out his work and stay tuned in case he visits your local stretch.
