    Thank you for posting these lovely photos of the golden days of The Wick Park neighborhood. I spent my early childhood in a beautiful grand old home on the corner of Park Ave and Ohio and have memories of how lovely the neighborhood was even in the late 1970s/Early 80s. Hopefully these will inspire people to keep on with the movement of revitalization that has began. This area is truly one of America’s Historic and Architectural Gems and I believe it isn’t too late for hope.
