al capone & son at cominsky park
If I ever lived in the Chicago area again it would certainly be on the south side. If it was good enough for Mr. Capone it's good enough for me. (my freshman dorm at chicago was a hotel he used to frequent) I've been a huge prohibition era buff from around 3rd or 4th grade on. I remember my parents took me on a 'mob' tour of chicago and from then on I was hooked. I knew all the hit men from Frank Nitty to Machine gun Kelly. And I always favored Capone's southside crew as opposed to Bugs Moran's northsiders. Who likes a northside hipster?
I'm headed down to Chicago to visit some family and take care of some business. I lived in Hyde Park for 4 years and am planning on a little photo safari through some of my old haunts. My family lives in Chinatown, so expect lots of food porn.
Any favorite spots? Places to eat? Drop me a line...
