Comment of the Day

"It is down but not out at all. Humboldt Park is springing to life again. Those prostitutes and junkies were the norm for decades and lived in the park, but now the park is free of them. Families have moved in and cleaned up the park. Gone are the dice throwers who also sold heroin on the side by joggers and dog walkers. I have seen the broken down buildings get rehabbed and good families move in and they go to the park and enjoy everything it has to offer..." —Richard Karwowski Sr. [Humboldt Park: A Magnet for Chicago's Immigrant]
