Summary:With over two hundred neighborhoods divided into seventy-seven community areas, Chicago offers a dazzling and daunting challenge to ambitious tourists and lifelong citizens. Did you know that Humboldt Park isn't even in Humboldt Park or that three mayors not named Daley have also hailed from Bridgeport? Confused about the exact boundaries of West Elsdon or curious about the origins of the famous Second City Theater? In a handbook that is both an entertaining adventure and a methodical survey, Mary Zangs tackles all seventy-seven communities, providing maps, points of interest and locals' perspectives for the many places Chicagoans call home.
