Slipping the surly bonds of Uptown

“Although it was an elite nineteenth-century suburb, Edgewater was not recognized as distinct when scholars laid out the community areas in the 1920s. Instead, Edgewater was merged into Uptown. In the 1970s, however, Edgewater’s property owners persuaded the city of Chicago to make a rare change in its community area maps and recognize Edgewater as a separate entity.”
