Squeezing in some hoops in Gold Coast. Alley courts are as old as most bungalows but this one caught my eye. The basket is installed on a new garage next to the coach house of a vintage mansion at Burton and Dearborn. The alley neighbor directly to the west is the Faulkner House high-rise that is part of Sandburg Village. It is a little known fact that William Faulkner shot his free throws "granny style". I made that up.
