WHAT ABOUT WEST DIVISION ST…????? IT WAS GREAT , SADLY WHERE I WAS BORN AND GREW UP HAS BEEN DESTROYED BY A HUGE HOSPITAL…WEST WAS FROM ASHLAND TO CALIFORNIA , GREAT HIGH SCHOOLS , GRAMMAR SCHOOLS, AND BEAUTIFUL TEMPLES AND CHURCHES.
We hear you but I have friends who grew up in that area and insist it is not part of the west side. We have highlighted a couple of stories about the Ukranian Village area. Check out our sister site at synagogues.lteren.com for videos about both East and West Humboldt Park areas. There are a few. Thanks for viewing and commenting.
NO WAY WAS DIVISION ST A PART OF THE WEST SIDE….. IT STOOD ALONE AS “THE NORTHWEST SIDE” AND I AM PROUD TO BE A PART OF THAT ERA AND LOCATION….. I WAS BORN AND RAISED ON THE 2200 BLOCK OF DIVISION ST…. 1934-1955… WOULD WALK TO CALIFORNIA AND DIVISION ST TO EAT AT THE HUMBOLDT SPOT OR HANG OUT …..I NEVER HAD A KEY TO OUR APARTMENT UNTIL I WAS 16 …DOOR WAS ALWAYS LEFT UNLOCKED… NEVER AFRAID OR HAD ANY FEAR ABOUT BEING OUT SIDE EVEN AFTER DARK…
first, thanks for viewing the video(s). second, Division Street is definitely the west side- it just depends at what point west you refer. anyplace
west of the grand avenue cut through, it is definitely west side up to north avenue west of kostner. there are those who grew up in east humboldt park who
may agree with you but there are others who consider themselves part of the west side pie.
third, you may not be aware but using all caps is a breach of protocol on the internet- it tends to mean one is shouting. regardless, many will not consider Humboldt Park area south of
north avenue the north side. so, to each our own. and i respect your position.
I AM SORRY IF I OFFENDED YOU BY USING ALL CAPS, BUT, i AM GOING BLIND AND ITS EASIER FOR ME TO SEE IF IT IS ALL CAPS…SORRY!!! AND ON THE OTHER SUBJECT IT WILL ALWAYS BE THE “NORTHWEST SIDE” AND I BELIEVE IT IS MY CHOICE AS TO WHERE I HAVE LIVED….. AT 86 I HAVE EARNED THAT RIGHT. ….. ONCE AGAIN IF I HAVE OFFENDED YOU, I AM TRULY SORRY…..BUT I WILL ALWAYS BE JUST A JEWISH KID FROM THE NORTHWEST SIDE ON DIVISION ST….
you didn’t offend me at all. and i indicated that you are entitled to your opinion. it’s a free country.
sorry for your visual affliction. was just letting you know that it is rare for anyone to use caps. good luck and hope you continue to check out our more than
600 video clips.
