Open House Chicago was taking place last weekend, and once again, no matter how busy I was, I wanted to go. And since the counter-protest took a big portion of my Saturday, we (Igor and I) decided to go on Sunday.
This year Igor planned for us to see the South Side locations. These days, people often think about the South Side as a dangerous place, which they would try to avoid by all costs. Meanwhile, historically, the center of Chicago was way more to the south than it is today, and the South Side has a very fashionable place (with no blacks allowed, of cause).
Unfortunately, I have no time to write in detail about all the places we’ve seen, but I am going to mention some highlights.
That was my first time visiting the Southshore Cultural Center, and for those who ever been there, it would be understandable that I was stunned.
And since it was impossible to capture all this beauty without video…
More to come! I love being a tourist in my own city!
