Wednesday I was at both Dunlays on the Square (3137 W. Logan Boulevard) and New Wave Coffee (photo below, 2557 N. Milwaukee Avenue), and, despite our current economy, both were standing room only! People were waiting for tables and seats to free up. That’s great news, isn’t it?
I was at both places introducing blogger Richard Layman of Washington, D.C. and Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space and blogger Aaron Renn of Chicago and Indianapolis and The Urbanophile to this stretch of Milwaukee Avenue and Logan Square.
It’s great to meet folks who share my interest in urban/revitalization issues and interesting to get fresh perspectives. They gave me much to think about. You can see ideas from some of the discussion at today’s Rebuilding Place posts here, here, and here.
