Sometimes they call it Andersonville, the unofficial neighborhood designation that overlays parts of the official community areas of Edgewater and Uptown. (According to the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce, Andersonville runs from Ainslie (4900 North) to Victoria (5800 North).) Sometimes they call it Ravenswood.
But the 4800 block is clearly Uptown, especially when you remember it's the former home of Rainbo Gardens (later known as Rainbo Ice Arena and Rainbo Roller Rink), and Lincoln Towing, which are as Uptown as the Aragon and Montrose Harbor.
But here's a new one. Language Stars, a program that teaches children other languages, will be setting up shop at 4814 N Clark, right where the Rainbo used to be, and we're thrilled to have them here. But check out how they're describing their location:
Language Stars, we're glad to have you here and we welcome you -- to Uptown.
