Urban Partnership Bank Request for Fun Facts about Chatham

A marketing manager at Urban Partnership Bank has asked for our help in finding some fun facts about the Chatham neighborhood for marketing purposed. Here is the actual e-mail posted publicly with permission:
Hi Sixth Ward Blogspot Volunteers,

I am the Virtual Marketing Manager for Urban Partnership Bank. I have been following your blog for the past 3 years. Thank you for all the wonderful write-ups you’ve done about the bank in the past.

We are currently working on ways to promote the diversity and vibrancy of our neighborhoods, including Chatham. I wanted to find 3 fun facts about Chatham and Google and my colleagues are failing me! I thought I’d go straight to the source.

Do you happen to have 3 interesting tidbits about Chatham that I might share with the Urban Partnership Bank national customer base? If so, do you think you might send them to me by Friday?

Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a million in advance for your time and assistance in this matter.

I look forward to your response.

Worlee also came up with some tidbits such as the film Ali with Will Smith was filmed along 79th Street. Also Chatham was the home of gospel singer Mahalia Jackson. Another tidbit was written on the FB page by Worlee I believe that zipcode 60619 is the haircare capitol of the nation.

Do you know anything that can be added to these fun facts? Post a comment in this post, write on our FB page, or send an e-mail. Hopefully there will be lots of facts to be turned in by this Friday.
