spent the first 15 years living in a Pullman Block house then an apartment 1 block west of 114th State street. St Nicks -Swank Roller Rink--Roseland show every Saturday -I knew every store -crook and cranny on Michigan ave and yes being able to safely walk the streets and taking public transportation from the age of six on.
Keeping the Roseland and nearby neighborhoods history alive is appreciated.
Upsetting is the misuse of neighborhood names by the Chicago Tribune and ABCTV
ignoring the boundaries of neighborhoods lumping them into one common name ie
West Pullman --announcing street addresses as 11-100 instead of 11100 apparently never learning the Chicago Grid system.
So it's up to all of us to keep the records straight for the next generation.
My one regret is my children would never have the opportunity to grow up in Roseland .
