Seedy motels chicago

Daley on Tuesday showed the "Lincoln Bend" neighborhood he could keep a promise. More than a year after declaring war on three North Lincoln Avenue rundown motels, which had become havens for illicit activity, Daley greeted about area residents with a wrecking crew and a colorful chart depicting plans for the green space that would replace the Riverside Motel at Peterson and Lincoln Avenues. This first step in the neighborhood's redevelopment is taking place a month before the much ballyhooed North Side Prep, a new magnet school, opens its doors down the street at Kedzie and Bryn Mawr Avenues. Highway 41, was the main access route to Chicago from the north.
