Reading Nook

On this damp evening, curl up with a warm laptop and read some reminiscences about Uptown from former denizens.  These blog entries reflect on some of Uptown's stories from years past:
  • "Quintrell" from In Search Of Words
  • "Worried Note" from Girls with Insurance.  (Author's Note:  "This is a non-fiction piece about my early days in Chicago when I lived in the notorious Uptown neighborhood amongst crackheads, crack dealers, prostitutes, and murderers. My block (Malden between Montrose and Wilson) was home to 10 murders one summer. That was the highest concentration I could find in all of Chicago in my analysis of a Chicago Tribune map.  Anyhow, I hope you read and enjoy the story.")
