Marquette Park & The Geese
Right across from Holy Cross Hospital, Marquette Park is the largest in the city, with two lagoons. Tough place now, gangs and all. Years back, there was a building on 71st that housed the Nazi party, and they were righteously mocked in the film BLUES BROTHERS, and the scene was filmed right there, by one of the lagoons. That big goose in the second photo? I talked to him for quite awhile. The added bonus of talking to the geese is that the gang members leave you alone.
