I stand corrected - the south-of-Diversey Lathrop buildings do appear to be in the formal LP community area.

the problem is the City *also* has an "official" map showing Lathrop as its own neighborhood, with LP stopping at Clybourn.

oh, snap - the map that was here is now gone!

City of Chicago

maybe this ties into the big rehab-LEED project for Lathrop...

as for Wrightwood Neighbors, it's a legitimate neighborhood in the sense it's been around for 40+ years, has an active association, regular meetings open to the public (critical), etc.

West DePaul is just stupid. Students are by definition transient, and there aren't enough professors who are homeowners to claim that turf IMO. More importantly, I will guarantee you that 75% of the people + living in that area have absolutely nothing to do with DePaul.

that one is borderline criminal - they had a Trib story a few years back about people who had rented in that "neighborhood" coming from out-of-state who then felt totally ripped off when they realized it wasn't the area they were expecting.

That's an interesting area to me. It's not quite a fit with the rest of Lincoln Park and Lakeview to the East, but doesn't seem to have its own identity as a neighborhood. It's got a gritty feel in some parts but has been a victim of rampant teardowns.

The intersection is in the Lincoln Park community area, but the neighborhood it is in certainly is not Lincoln Park.

Tell that to the city. The official city map uses both terms.
