New cycle path divides Chicagoans

 StreetWise - USA 21 September 2019

A defunct railroad track in Chicago has been transformed into a broad tree-lined path that flawlessly integrates tattooed punks, serious runners, families with strollers and dogs, and users of wheelchairs.

They are worried that the resulting gentrification will price them out of their homes. (1743 Words) - By Kellen F. Kiernan
