Positive Development in Bucktown

Just was out on this gloomy day and passed the corner at Wabansia and Milwaukee, new stoplight and all, where the new Bucktown/Wicker Park library has sprouted up out of nowhere. It looks pretty nice, and it has to be better than the tiny clubhouse of a library that I used to live by at Damen and Dickens. I don’t think it’s open yet though.

Do people go to libraries anymore? I wonder. The printed word is being killed off by our evil computers! Now we have movable type…

As for positive development elsewhere in Bucktown, I have yet to find it. I’ve never seen so many awful ugly structures go up so quickly. How long can it last?

    People do… I do. Although, not in Bucktown. I’m not hip enough to go to the library in Bucktown. ;)
