There are a lot of things wrong with the hood I live in but one thing that's right about it, are the soft breezes that come off the Fox River in the Spring and Summer. The breezes make up for a lot. Of course the other reason I would hate to leave here is the sound of the trains at night. I love that sound, works better than a sleeping pill. Another great thing is that children still play kick ball in the street. People still grill out with charcoal and sit on their stoop in the evening and greet the people walking by. Sometimes this seems like the best place on earth.
