Posted to the new Guess Where Chicago pool on Flickr, my latest pastime:

This 1880s planned community maintains a remarkable degree of unity. Although the Old surrounding neighborhood has well more than its share of party walls, few of its streets were built by a single hand — and the others were built a century hence, by which point architecture had declined considerably as an art. Its beguiling intimacy is deceiving: neighboring streets are narrower still, but have lower buildings, fewer trees, and even smaller front yards.


One thought on “Guess where?

  1. I thought it was california terrace by Clark and Halsted, but I realized that there aren’t any cars park in front of the buildings.
    I cheated and now realize that it is Crilly court.
