Uptown is a neighborhood very much in transition, and today it continues to change with the renovation of the Uptown Theater, the construction of new housing and an influx of new arrivals. This walking tour would look back at Uptown's past lives and how it continues to look into the future as a place that contains both speculative plans for reinvention combined with a reverence for those groups that have made the community what it is today.This tour is led by urbanologist Max Grinnell. Rain or shine!
This program is a part of the 2018-2019 One Book, One Chicago season, exploring the theme Imagine The Future and the book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick. For more information on other events, visit www.onebookonechicago.org.
