1300 block of North Sedgwick Avenue would be The Marshall Field Garden Apartments (a large subsidized housing project). Let;s call this one for what it is: black violence.

Back in the 1960's Old Town was in the in place to be especially on weekends. You couldn't even walk down the side walks it was so crowded. Now the Beast has his way.

TRUE! People forget that there is a major housing project still there.

That is the only part of LP and Old Town where there are those CPD Camera boxes on the street corners.

Horse stables and housing projects in that zone... A lot of inner city animals around there...
