Thanks for the reply Ted. We moved out of the neighborhood in 1970. Sometime in the 70's they turned it into a dance club or roller rink or something, and it was called the concrete jungle. Do you have any pic's or info from the Chicago & Pulaski area? Do you recall a tavern called Phil's Lounge? Thanks again! Ron

How about Hagens Fish on Montrose west of Central? Great fish sandwiches for $1.50.

Anyone remember the Woolworth's on Chicago Ave. at Hamlin? Kitty-corner there was a great little wooden newsstand that sold candy, gum and such. Anyone have any pictures?

THANKS CHIPAST! I know G & L Bowl was called the "Concrete Jungle" in the 70's/80's. It was a grayish cement color. If anyone has any pictures of G & L Bowl or anything related to the Chicago and Pulaski Ave. area please let me know. Thanks,

Wow! It is a small world! We lived at 740 N. Springfield. I'm not sure I spelled the store name right. It was pronounced Mago's with a long A. It was a small corner store on Huron I believe directly across from an open lot that was used for bonfires on the 4th of July. They would collect and throw couches, mattresses, tv's or anything they could find for the fire. Never allow that today...

Hello, I am new to Forgotten Chicago, and it sounds like a great website. Does anyone have any history or photo's of the Chicago Ave. and Pulaski Ave. neighborhood? I went to Our Lady of the Angels grammar school (1965 - 1970), and lived on Springfield Ave. right off of Chicago Ave. G & L Bowl, Phil's Lounge, Woolworth's, The Carnival, the yearly bonfire across from Maggio's store
