Untitled[edit]

OK people, here's my opinion regarding this page: it should be about the Community Area of Uptown. For those that still don't know or understand, Community Area boundaries don't change over time, they are officially defined and are static. So for the eight millionth time :), Buena Park is located in Uptown, no part of it even touches Lake View. Look at a map people! Lake View stops at Irving, east of Clark Street. Buena Park is only a few square blocks big, and none of it extends south of Irving Park.

I'm sick of being told by developers that i live in Lake View, when in fact I am a block away from the orignal Uptown elevated terminal station. Lake View is nice, but I LOVE UPTOWN the way it is! Stop degrading the name of Uptown by claiming that all the "upscale" parts of it are in another community area. Consult a map before you start yappin' your nonsense!

Besides those errors, the latest edits are pretty nice...cool map too!

The Neighborhoods of Uptown[edit]

According to the Chicago interactive city map, (http://maps.cityofchicago.org/mapchicago/viewer.htm), the neighborhood of Ravenswood is west of Clark Street, between Foster and Montrose Avenues and extends westward beyond the Uptown boundary and to the north branch of the Chicago river, which is the western boundary of the Lincoln Square community. The Ravenswood neighborhood started in the mid nineteenth century and should be represented in this excellent neighborhood map.

In addition, The map stated above does not show the Truman Square, Anderson Terrace, Argyle Park, Lakeside or Clarendon Park neighborhoods. They are represented in the map as the Uptown neighborhood. Can these neighborhoods be found in books on the subject? Rkm3612 00:08, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
