Not sure Englewood would like this one...

I'm not sure if a link to this site was shared earlier on this blog, but this site makes images that are certainly insulting to neighborhoods and suburbs around the Chicagoland area. Englewood gets the treatment you see above. The site is called Slightly Insulting Chicago Posters and I checked the site out after a posting about another image from there over at Sloopin.

While not meant to be "slightly insulting" this almost evokes The Chicago Neighborhoods' brand for Englewood the background pic utilized was of the "murder castle" mentioned in the image above.
The brand you see to the left caused a stir on this blog when it was originally posted.

In any case what you see above certainly is meant to be sarcastic. The murder castle itself at 63rd & Wallace is long gone. But as with the case of the earlier brand from Chicago Neighborhoods, it may not help Englewood's image as a violent neighborhood.

I wonder what the residents of Englewood think about this.
