Gold Coast hoop dreams

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.

Faulkner House at 70 West Burton Place, Chicago IL 60610 overlooks the hoop. 
The amazing vintage property at Burton and Dearborn and owner of the alley basketball hoop.
