Chicago Neighborhoods

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic The best way to experience a Chicago neighborhood is from its sidewalks. This study group will include weekly walks through Chicago neighborhoods to appreciate and discuss their history, status, and plans for the future. We plan to visit the old Polish downtown area, Goose Island and Lincoln Yards, Fulton Market, and the Ukrainian Village. We selected these areas because collectively they tell a story of history and revitalization in areas just a few miles from the OLLI Chicago campus. Each location is close to public transportation. This is a physical activity where participants must be able to walk up to two miles on a summer morning. The walks may include visits to museums in the area where there is an admission charge. Prior to each walk we will provide reading materials describing the history of the neighborhood, and its landmarks and plans. Join us. The neighborhoods are fascinating!
