After work yesterday I walked from home with Shawn to the 500 block of Hawthorne Place. It's only a few blocks from our place in Lakeview. It's one of the few areas in the neighborhood with single-family homes. The houses on this block are also unusual for Chicago because they look more like country homes than city houses.
I've also heard a rumor that the actress Joan Cusak does or did live on Hawthorne. But that might just be an urban legend.
There is one ugly apartment building on the block that looks like it was built in the 1970's. And there is what is probably a very expensive private day school.
