Do you ever wonder what your neighbors have to say but are afraid to ask? While we would like to think that all Chicagoans are friends of the Chicago History Museum, the people who live in the surrounding streets of the Lincoln Park community are definitely close neighbors, and have been since the museum opened at the corner of North Ave. and Clark St. in 1932.
Explore the story map to eavesdrop on comments captured from Lincoln Parkers (as I like to call them) past and present. Each marker contains excerpts from interviews on the joys and frustrations of city life. Just for the record, this selection of clips clearly doesn’t include everybody block by block. But it could. Here is an extended invitation to share what Lincoln Park is like (or used to be like) for you—listen in and sound off!
