My Block My Hood My City visits the Austin community

[VIDEO] I had been reading this write-up from Jahmal Cole's My Block, My Hood, My City about the Austin community which is the largest community area in our city. The video above is entertaining and certainly the write-up is as well.

We learn that there is good in Austin such as a restaurant MacArthur's and of course the area also has some wonderful homes and a strong community organization as Central Austin Neighborhood Association. I had to think for a second Austin has a bad repuation but there's good in Austin and then Englewood also has a bad reputation but there's good in Englewood. So we expect good to be found in all these neighborhoods which don't get good press.

In any event this is the second community Cole had visited. He also paid a visit to the southeast city community of Hegewisch. You may have seen a "regram" on our Instagram account.
