Penrose in the Snow #1, Anderson Avenue

Can we quit spreading the myth that the entire North Side is a disaster? It’s not. While there are clearly neighborhoods, such as Wells-Goodfellow that are severely depressed, other parts of the upper half of the city, such as the Penrose neighborhood, are doing perfectly fine, with high home ownership and community pride.

But they won’t stay fine if we don’t support them.

Anderson Avenue, coming out to the east of Penrose Park, has nary an abandoned building.

These pictures are a bit strange, as a freak snow storm hit the area while I was photographing the neighborhood.

    Ownership may be high and the properties look well maintained, but if you look at the crime stats I can’t say I agree that the area does not have its problems…
