i believe it's the only stretch of the city that extends north of Howard along Juneway Street and Jonquil Terrace.

Dave, The Forgotten Chicago message board does not offer upload space for photos. Instead, you can link to any photo that is already hosted elsewhere by using the ... tags, for example (without spaces or quotes) "[ I M G ] "http://www.whatever.com/picture.jpg" [ / I M G ]" A good place to host your photos is bayimg.com Mike Damian ForgottenChicago.com

Lorrainium, I have no idea, but from the Google Streetview of it, one can see an old woman standing on a door stoop... it looks like some of the cruelest housing in the city, no windows and the ceiling is as high as the doorframe?
