Neighborhood Character

14 May

I saw that Budget Travel’s May issue mentions some great places in our neighborhood including M Henry and Flourish, oddly enough claiming they are part of Andersonville. Regardless, these spots among many others represent hte character of our great neighborhood. Small eateries, locally owned and within walking distance for many. People from throughout the city come to the area to experience these more low key establishments in our more low key community. Still, just like Wicker Park years ago and perhaps the West Loop, this ‘character’ can be changed in a short time with the influx of unchecked development. The new mixed use construction touted by developers often includes national chains or bank branches or other sterile characterless institutions that don’t really add much to the community.

Like M Henry, this is just some delicious food…for thought.
