CHICAGO Trip (2/23/13) Pictures, Part 6: Day 4, Part 1 (Lincoln Park)
Hey again, Chicago forumers! I apologize for the long delay, but here's the first set of my final day in Chicago in February 2012! This time, I toured Lincoln Park, Lincoln Park Zoo, Old Town, and the Gold Coast. Here is the first part, mainly focused on Lincoln Park itself.
Started on the north shore, on Chicago Avenue...

Hope you enjoyed this phototour, the 2nd part of the 4th day (and last part of my Chicago trip) COMING SOON!
I'm a kind of person feeling like living back in the 1950s, one who favors and enjoys the Golden-age, rust-belt cities of Buffalo, Pittsburgh, and Detroit, and the Gothic skylines of New York and Philadelphia. In my eye, they have more character, soul, and history to be pictured than today's world-class, cosmopolitan, and sprawling cities.

Great photo tour you've put together there, and this set is especially well done. It reminds me how vast and amazing Lincoln Park is. Well done!

I see that you took a picture of my turn-of-the-century condo building by North Pond.
Thanks. I love these pics of the neighborhood.
