Curbed Chicago on the recent NY Times story on Chatham

While Worlee was where I had first discovered a story about Chatham from the New York Times, Curbed Chicago had something to say about it:
A shocking 2010 murder threatened to derail the proud neighborhood, but strong social ties prevailed. As criminologists see it, Chatham has "ecological advantages" in its small single-family housing stock— more familiarity among neighbors, less blight from vacant lots. Dennis Rodkin recently put Chatham atop a list of neighborhoods with housing on the rebound. And new businesses are cropping up. Will the trend hold? Not even the mighty Times can say.
No one can say, but we can only continue to work towards a rebound.

Refer to last night's post for more about the NY Times article. The photo above was from a CBS Chicago story last year about Chatham.
