What’s in a name? This all-new walking tour on Sunday, June 4, 2017 will examine the neighborhoods once known as Bricktown, California Park, Little Cassubia, and California Park along the Chicago River in the eastern reaches of the Irving Park and Avondale community areas, bringing to light the remnants of old subdivisions and settlements such as “Unter den Linden.” We’ll also look at remnants from the area’s early history as a crossroads of water and rail transport, as well as visit sites connected to the growth and evolution of this overlooked nook of Chicago’s Northwest Side.
Of course, we’ll discuss the area’s industrial and ethnic history, historic homes, overlooked art old and new (seen above) as well as hidden remnants and curiosities. Don’t miss this all-new tour!
