Barack Obama's Historic Neighborhood

I love the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago. It's home to such venerable institutions as the University of Chicago and The Museum of Science and Industry. Famous past and present residents include Mahalia Jackson, Saul Bellows, Muhammad Ali, Marshall Field, and our new President-Elect Barack Obama.

I want to thank my friend Andy for giving me the head's up on this Web site, which shows photographs from last week, taken a few days after the election. If you want to get a good look at some of the historic homes and architecture of Barack Obama's neighborhood, and see how the election is changing it all, check it out.

This is an early Frank Lloyd Wright house on Woodlawn Ave. just south of 51st St., in Barack Obama's neighborhood. Click for an enlarged view and to see the figures at the top.
