Full coverage, or what I’m missing

Well, not quite. While admiring the 2005 bike map, I decided to see how many Chicago community areas I have neither walked nor cycled in and found five: Avalon Park, Burnside, Calumet Heights, Dunning, and Mt. Greenwood. The first three are in a triangle south of the Skyway and southeast of Chatham — not too difficult, and near some interesting street patterns I want to check out. The latter two are at the city’s edges. Dunning is due west-northwest, but literally has nothing to see but miles of bungalows (including Schorsch Village) and an asylum. Mt. Greenwood has the Agricultural High School, Cook County’s last working farm.
