I grew up at Belmont and Sheridan Rd. I remember driving home late at night with my parents visiting family on the South Side and hitting the turn at Oak St. on LSD and seeing lights from the smelters for miles - It was a fantastic sight that I really miss!
I went a few times with my Uncle and cousins - light, dip net, deep fryer - we'd cook 'em up right there on a cold night, nothing tasted better. Warms my stomach to think of it.
Best to all!
