The coolest neighborhood in Chicago, mostly due to the diversity, proximity to Evanston, and all the cool former members of the Lutheran Volunteer Corps living in the area. Unfortunately, there's a lot of gentrification going on in the area, as old 3-flats are being taken over by condo developers. Still, there are a lot of cool peoples around.

(updated 19.12.2000: OK, calling it the coolest neighborhood was a bit subjective, I admit, but hey, it's my hood - what can I say?)
