Near West Side Stories: Struggles for Community in Chicago's Maxwell Street Neighborhood

Catalog Number: 
b.20.5
Date: 
June 2002
Volume: 
1st ed
Abstract: 
<em>Near West Side Stories: Struggles for Community in Chicago's Maxwell Street Neighborhood</em> is an ongoing story of unequal power in Chicago. Four representatives of immigrant and migrant groups that have had a distinct territorial presence in the area&mdash;one Jewish, one Italian, one African-American, and one Mexican&mdash;reminisce fondly on life in the old neighborhood and tell of their struggles to save it and the 120-year-old Maxwell Street Market that was at its core. <p> <em>Near West Side Stories</em> brings this saga of community strife up to date, while giving a voice to the everyday people who were routinely discounted or ignored in the big decisions that affected their world. Though slaying that dragon&mdash;fending off the encroachments of those wielding great power&mdash;was nearly impossible, we see in the details of their lives the love for a place that compelled Harold, Florence, Nate, and Hilda to make the quest.</p>

The Politics of Place: A History of Zoning in Chicago

Catalog Number: 
b.20.15
Date: 
June 2005
Volume: 
1st ed
Abstract: 
<p><em>The Politics of Place: A History of Zoning in Chicago </em>reviews the interplay between development, planning, and zoning in the growth of the Gold Coast, the Central Area, and, more recently, massive &quot;planned developments,&quot; such as Mariina City, Illinois Center, and Dearborn Park. It tells the story of bold visions compromised by political realities, battles between residents and developers, and occasional misfires from City Council and City Hall.</p><p>What emerges is a fascinating, behind-the-scenes inspection of the evolving character of the city's landscape. Schwieterman and Caspall recount the many planning innovations that have originated in Chicago, the complexiities and intrigue of its zoning debates, and the recent adoption of a new zoning ordinance that promises to affect the city's economy and image for years to come. </p><p><em>The Politics of Place: A History of Zoning in Chicago</em> is the culmination of a research effort undertaken by the Chaddick Institute for Metropolitan Development at DePaul University. <br /></p>
