Since Jim Gramata moved to 2321 W. McLean in 2003, what he calls the “fourth quadrant of Bucktown” has become, in his view, the premier part of the neighborhood.
A major draw for area families is Holstein Park, one of the city’s jewels, and a place where the community gathers for swimming, baseball and meetings, and people from around the city attend major events such as the Bucktown Arts Fest.
Until recently, according to Jim, Pulaski Fine Arts Academy, the neighborhood school a few doors from his home, was known for its poor test scores. The school now has a new principal, renovation funds, and a new program. It’s now Pulaski International School and, perhaps, a viable alternative for area families.
