Thanks. I am doing my best to heal. The reaction I am getting from people who see my face right now is at first funny as they look a bit freaked. Then I am like "Oh damn I hope I look normal again someday" lol

Yes we need to finally meet for coffee. Should have happened long ago, but so much insanity going on this past year has gotton in the way of me getting to the city like I used

I really hope that street can do Father's Day Festa Pasta Vino this year!!! I've been attending for several years.

Also, walking distance from there is St. Paul's Catholic Church. I once attended a trilingual mass( English, Spanish, and Latin all mixed in 1). It was very neat!

That church is seen in The Untouchables movie!!
I remember going to St. Paul's once, for a past Open House Chicago. I was very glad I got to visit that church, and thought it was one of the more interesting churches I had seen during OHC. Didn't realize it was briefly seen, in The Untouchables. Also I'd say St. Benedict the African in Englewood, was one of my favorite churches I had seen as well. Which mainly I felt encouraged to visit, since I also visited nearby Yale Apartments that year. Sadly, that building wasn't again an OHC site, after only a year or 2 of being in OHC.

I do like the improvements done in Uptown over the years, and that it doesn't feel as bummy as it used to be of a neighborhood. It still does feel a little sketch in some parts of that area(i.e. Sheridan between Wilson and Lawrence), but some parts of it are very nice like on Buena between Broadway to Marine Drive.

Chicagoisthebest did mention a bunch of good neighborhoods in his post, I'll say. And as much as I want to like Lincoln Park and Old Town, the yuppieness of that area always did turn me off a little bit about those 2 neighborhoods. The architecture and feel of those 2 areas is nice, though. I do GREATLY like the old architecture of houses that are just north and west of North and Wells, though. And Old Town Ale House is a pretty great bar, as well. The artwork the owner creates and puts inside his bar at times, is interesting as well. For Lincoln Park(it's in the western part of it), I always liked Delilah's a lot. And the toy and art store across the street called Rotofugi(sp?, I never remember how to spell it), is cool as well. I really hope both bars make it through COVID, and don't close for good! It sucks we have already lost some good bars b/c of COVID, such as Guthrie's and Huettenbar.

Chicagoisthebest, good morning.

We definitely agree on Lincoln Square. The area by the plaza is truly unique. The closest comparison would be the little plaza on Taylor Street in Little Italy; which would probably be my # 5 spot on my list.

Norwood Park- yes. Love those houses. And it's down the street from my vote for Edison Park.

Have a great day.

SonySegaTendo617, good morning. St. Paul's is a beautiful church. The day we went to mass, a man came up to us while in the pews and gave me a $20.00 bill, because he was impressed at how well the children were behaved! That is truly a great memory for me.

The scene where Malone and company come to Elliott Ness' house is where you can see the 2 church towers. If you go there you can see the house that was used as the Ness family home.

You mentioned the Huettenbar closing. It made me so sad. It was a trace of the Germanic tradition I really wanted Lincoln Square to hold onto.

I miss Delilah's a lot. Thursday or Sunday nights I would hang out on the 2nd floor often.

Master Jay, what should I check out in that specific patch of Armour Square? The only thing I've done there is frequent the Chinese businesses on Wentworth between 28th and 29th.

japster28, good day. I hope all is well. Thank you for asking.

The area near 28th and Princeton is one of those areas that might be more of a personal love. It might not be for everyone else. But maaaaaaybe it would.

For a person who wants to go a bit south of Chinatown, there's a strip on Princeton that runs between 26th and I believe it's 33rd Street. It is a traditional Sicilian and Croatian neighborhood. You'll find great Italian restaurants on 26th Street or 31st Street. I believe Francos is on 31st.

The annual Croatian Fest at St. Jerome Church is August 15. THIS Milwaukee man and his kids have carried flags in their parade the last 3 years. Can you believe that???

Also, on 33rd Street is Armour Square Park. Some nice, kinda divey bars there as well.

Something for everybody on that strip!
