Walk Wicker Park Landmark District October 28th, 2012

We were in Wicker Park's historic Landmark District meeting with clients last week.  It's one of my favorite areas to view architecture in the fall season.  Here's a few shots of our client's block.
Here's an original mansion on West Evergreen above.  The blocks can be both spooky and gorgeous in fall weather.
Most buildings and houses have mature landscaping in parkways and front lawns that feels very spontaneous.
Here's a side view of a large Wicker Park corner lot home with some updates through the years.

The Chicago Architecture Foundation has a walking tour coming up Saturday, October 28th.  Many Chicago tour books feature walking guides of Wicker Park with great information as well.
