Lakeview is known as the most walkable neighborhood our fine city.  There is really nothing pedestrian about it.  It is bordered by the great lake and rising to the status of the second largest neighborhood in Chicago.  Lakeview seems to have it all.

In the early 1960s, the area from Lake Michigan west to Ravenswood Avenue and Diversey Parkway to the south to Irving Park Road north boomed. Department store giant Wieboldt's thrived along Lincoln Avenue making it the largest retail district outside of the Loop.  Economic shifts and urban growth briefly changed all that.

Today, positive economic shifts and migration back to the city is creating change once again in the neighborhood.  CLICK HERE to read all about it.

When chef Erwin Dreschler was growing up in Albany Park back in the 1950s, Americans were about as excited about the convenience canned and frozen foods as they were with the space program.

His family's meals at Rosh Hashanah must have seemed terribly old-fashioned, especially for a city kid. "My mother was a great gardener, and she used what she'd grown at Rosh Hashanah. We never had frozen or canned vegetables," said Dreschler, who was clearly influenced by her garden-fresh philosophy.  "In fact, we never had vegetables that she hadn't grown. It was a frugal, resourceful way for her to provide for us. That's just the way we did things."

Today, it's relatively easy for non-gardening/non-farming Chicagoans to be as choosy as Dreschler's mother was during the holidays, thanks to our local farmers markets.  CLICK HERE to read the entire article.
