I drove around and saw there is a small section of Armitage in Lincoln Park, but the street ends or changes to a different one. The other Armitage is longer, and intersects Humboldt Blvd. Is this part of Armitage considered Humboldt Park?

Armitage west of Racine becomes Cortland. It begins again at Elston a 1/2 block north of Cortland.

When Armitage Ave. first picks up again at Ashland, you are in Bucktown, then when you head West I believe you are in the south part of Logan Square or on the Logan/Humboldt border

Armitage doesn't exactly "become" Cortland. Armitage ends at Racine, and if you make a left on Racine the next street it hits is Clybourn, and that's where Cortland starts.

And Armitage actually begins again a block <i>east</i> of Elston. There's a short little street (I forget the name) that comes off Cortland heading north, and then makes a 90-degree turn to the left, at which point you're on Armitage.

(I know all this because I've been taking quite a few walks in the vicinity recently.)

And I drive it from Armitage and Larabee everyday to get on the highway. For purposes of Arm-Cort "zig-zag"ers my description was fine. If the OP was looking to become a topogrpher, your description would serve them well.

Why the hell are you walking around the Southport/Cortland industrial corridor by the way? Some kind of shady business seems to go on by that bridge nightly when the cops park their cars horizontally and disallow motor traffic on the bridge.

Some people like to take walks at night.

I stand by my previous statement. Armitage and Cortland are two separate streets... heck, once you get west into Bucktown, they coexist parallel to each other.

And to answer your question, I like to take long walks in the city and explore different areas... and up until the weather turned hot and humid the past week or two, I was doing a lot of it -- up to eight or ten miles a day. And ever since I was a kid growing up in Cleveland, I've always been somewhat fascinated with industrial areas (my mom used to take me for walks through Cleveland's "Flats" area before it became an entertainment district).

I've never felt unsafe around the Southport/Cortland area... but I should clarify that I take walks over there only during the day, never at night.
