Joe Steffen will lead a 2.5 hour, 4 mile walk past many 19th-century mansions and townhouses in the Arlington & Roslyn Place and McCormick Row House Landmark Districts and throughout the Wrightwood and Park West neighborhoods in the Lincoln Park community area of Chicago, following this route. We will see the Biograph Theater, where bank robber John Dillinger was killed in 1934 by federal agents. We will also see the amazing interior of the Elks National Veterans Memorial. We will walk even if it is raining, so bring an umbrella or poncho. Please do not bring your dog.
Note: This walk starts at noon, not the usual 10 AM, because the Elks National Veterans Memorial doesn't open until noon.
Directions: CTA: Take the Brown or Red Line to Fullerton and walk 1 long block east to Halsted St.
Driving: Take Lake Shore Drive to the Fullerton exit, drive west to the Halsted, Fullerton, & Lincoln intersection. Street parking is $2/hour, 3 hours max.
If you arrive after we have departed, wait for us to return to the Meetup location at about 12:30 PM.
