Walking around the neighborhood you can't miss all the buildings, mostly sitting on corners, that use to be stores or taverns in the past. I'd love to hear from any residents that remember what some of these places were, when they closed down, and what it was like inside. I've tried doing research online, but it's hard to find specifics.
A couple buildings I've noticed close to me:
corner of 36th & wood
36th & honore
old bar at 36th & damen
wood & 34th pl
Wolcott & 38th st
Any info would be appreciated. I love learning about our neighborhood's history.
