Marktown, East Chicago is worth a visit. Only a few blocks remain of this planned community for steel workers, and it is surrounded on every side by steel mill. It could be Pullman-esque if more people actually wanted to live there, but otherwise there’s nothing else quite like it around these parts.

And I will confess that East Chicago is arguably not a suburb of Chicago.

Roseland Obama Attractions

If you ever have the chance to attend a service at the Reformation African American Lutheran Mission Church, by all means go.  It’s a small congregation, but a rousing sermon. Also, Jazz Vespers.  Obama had an office in the basement.
