(Im)possible Chicago #20
The Chicago in which neighborhoods were renamed with the names of other neighborhoods. Englewood for Beverly, Lithuanian Plaza for Boystown, Cabrini-Green for Edgewater, and so on with the rest. With this flip flopping some prejudices and biases were transplanted while others remained, becoming even more entrenched when new residents moved in by mistake. A few stigmas were erased, balanced out by new predispositions cropping up elsewhere.
