With in a mile — 6 Comments

  1. LOL! At least Chicago is laid out in a sane civic planning format, and
    a clear grid, so if you can figure out North, South, East, and West,
    you are pretty good. You don’t really need street names if you know
    the N/S-E/W coordinates.

  2. Chuckle, chuckle.

    I learned how to drive on the Ryan and Kennedy Expressways. I went to college a mile west of the apartment UI Chicago at Roosvelt and Halstead.

  3. If your GPS is anything like ours–forget about it! It took us over and over and over the Charles River. Not a pretty sight. Elly uses it and I yell at it.

  4. This is some adventure, getting your daughter set up and settled in! Sounds like a great neighborhood, though. Anything that’s got grocery stores *and* a public library in a major city within do-able walking distance is good.

  5. Yes. I visited every spring from 2000-10 for annual meetings of the Higher Learning Commission (aka North Central Association) which met in the Hyatt on Wacker Driver just east of Michigan Avenue. It is hardly comparable to the city where I grew up in the 50’s and 60’s or the city in decline in the 70’s and 80’s. Living there now would not bad…assuming one had an eight-figure income.
