    What I find weird off-putting about you is how you carry a grudge on strangers.

    Also while I comment in a few neighborhoods like many others its obvious which neighborhood I live in...like almost all the others....

    However...you are just all over the place and it seems like wherever you actually do live you have no connection to that community.

    You are like a self-appointed schoolmarm debasing whoever for whatever. Don't matter if it's a lost dog, a murder, or a recommendation for a plumber there you are.

    Is it ok to ask...what is your neighborhood, do you actually live in Chicago?

What's with "swings"?

I was on a walk in the neighborhood on a block just west of Ridge and I saw several houses on the same block with large signs on the lawns saying "We Support Swings". Then I saw what looked like a whole porch swing detached from its frame, in front of one of the houses, out by the curb. Like it was to be picked up by a trash collector.

    Does anyone know anything about a neighborhood ban on porch or yard swings?

    One of my first Ultra Local Geography projects was documenting the decorative stone door surrounds in Rogers Park. Another project was tracking down some of the neighborhood buildings that had been published in various journals. So when I decided to get some more experience with digital colorization I thought it would be interesting to combine two old projects.
