Uptown Mural

Sheridan at Lawrence Avenue. Read about Uptown's fascinating history and see photos of some of its former lords.

  1. I'll have to read up on Uptown! I've been to Chicago many times and have friends there ... and I don't believe I've ever been to this area. Will have to check it out next visit.

  2. I can only applaud the motto.

    Loved yesterday's story about dating at Whole Foods. Is that going to change your weekend habits???

  3. Wow, I had to do a double-take on this one. Back in the day when I was a Chicagoan the uptown area was someplace to be avoided. Glad to see this has been cleaned up.

    I love the mural. The color saturation in your pic is excellent.

  6. Thank you Waldo, Nathalie, Dan,Fenix, and Anonymous.

    Nathalie, in answer to your question, lol, thankfully, no...

    Waldo Fenix, and Dan, Uptown has changed a lot and it is definitely worth a visit (or re-visit in your case, Dan).

    Thank you anonymous for the links.
