SOUTH SHORE RESIDENTIAL STREET - NAME UNKNOWN - BOWER OF TREES - FROM CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD SITE

Nice to see there are still tree-lined streets. I understand that the even more impressive American Elms that once made streets like this resemble natural cathedrals died from Dutch Elm disease. 

The city also, in some neighborhoods, cut down massive old trees to reduce fear of crime when neighborhoods changed rapidly with the phenomenon of white flight.
