New Meetup: Oak Park - Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District

From: Joe S.
Sent on: Sunday, April 11, 2010 12:38 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for Windy City Explorers!

What: Oak Park - Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District

When: Saturday, April 17,[masked]:00 AM

Where:
Oak Park Visitors Center
1010 Lake St.
Oak Park, IL 60301
888.OAK.PARK

Joe Steffen will lead a 3.7 mile walk past about 20 Frank Lloyd Wright designed buildings, Hemingway's birthplace, and other historic mansions and parks, following this route: http://www.walkjogrun.net/routes/current_route.cfm?rid=7F6E3D28-BBE8-E6E5-85954B044C5C5D37&success=1
If you've read the book Loving Frank, we will be going past the Edward Cheney house. I have information about many of the houses, and we will briefly stop to look at them, so expect the walk to take about two hours.

Afterwards, you can tour the Frank Lloyd Wright home and studio ($15): http://www.gowright.org/visit/home-and-studio/tour-information.html
You can also visit the Hemingway Museum and tour his birthplace house ($8): http://www.ehfop.org/

Directions: CTA: Take the Green Line to Harlem/Lake. Go out the east station exit to Marion St. Walk north 1 block to Lake St., walk east to the visitor center.
Metra: Take the Metra Union Pacific District West Line to the Oak Park station, and follow the directions above.
Driving: Take the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290) to the Harlem exit off of the left expressway lane, go north about 1 mile and turn right on Lake St. Just past Forest Avenue (the 2nd stoplight) turn left into the parking garage, which will cost about $3 for the duration of the walk (street parking is more expensive, and the meters only take coins). Walk west on Lake St. to the visitor center. Important: one lane is closed on the Eisenhower Expressway for construction, so allow an extra 30 minutes to get to Oak Park.
If you arrive after we have departed, call Joe's cell phone[masked] to find out where we are.
