Chicago Neighborhoods that Are Straight-Up Fake

While we’re at it: those upscale high rises south of North Avenue at Clybourn—“SoNo East”? Not real, either.​

    Chicago Neighborhoods that Are Straight-Up Fake
    Chicagoans call their town a "city of neighborhoods" like other places don't have them. At times, we take such pride in residing within the city limits that our enclaves become a part of our identities. We're not just Chicagoans; we're Rogers Parkers, Logan Squarers, Garfield Parkers.

Fireworks at James Otis park this year?

Just moved to neighborhood and heard that the park at James Otis does awesome fireworks every year... Anyone know if they will be on display this 4th of July again?

  • Hi, Alexandra. We've been here 15 years, and they've been done every 4th. They stage them in the faculty parking lot at Otis. Many people line the sidewalks on Grand Ave. with chairs to watch. But you can view from the entire immediate area. They do 3-4 displays, I believe. Just a heads up. it's VERY loud since it's in a residential area. and smoky of you're downwind. Have fun!

  • Thank you! We literally live across the street, so will give our guests on the 4th a heads up as we watch from our roof deck💥💥💥💥
