Wicker Park to Ukrainian Village Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Nelson Algren said loving Chicago is “like loving a woman with a broken nose.” Today the once-gritty sidewalks he immortalized in his post-war writings are part of a neighborhood that’s had a nose job—and a radical one at that. The twisting streets are still there, but now they’re as likely to be lined with Acuras and flowers as with Dodge beaters and snoozing drunks. It’s another chapter in the long and varied history of Wicker Park and its smaller sibling Ukrainian Village. A walk here is rich in the legacy of a dozen decades of the city’s ups and downs. And even amongst the glitz, Algren would still find plenty that was familiar."
