The Lake View neighborhood, located on Chicago's north side, is known today for its celebrities, million-dollar homes, and Wrigley Field, but it was once a very different community. The English language now rules where shopkeepers once risked rebuke if they did not speak German. Expensive restaurants stand where America's celery capital once thrived. Pricey homes sell where a Chicago "sausage king" once committed a grisly murder. This chronicle memorializes boxing and Bishop Bernard Sheil at St. Andrew Parish, meals at Kuhn's Deli on Lincoln Avenue, the corner stores of the Terra Cotta neighborhood, and the snowstorm of 1967, capturing the spirit that helped Lake View endure troubled times to become one of Chicago's most iconic neighborhoods.
