The Two Joes drive 63rd Street into Woodlawn

Chicago had perfect convertible weather yesterday, and Joe Zekas and I took full advantage of it. We jumped in Val’s old Miata around lunchtime, cruised down the Dan Ryan Expressway to 63rd Street, and shot driving tours of several South Side neighborhoods.

In this first video, we take 63rd Street east to Cottage Grove Avenue in Woodlawn, a neighborhood that is seeing new construction in fits and starts, but whose landscape is still pocked with full blocks of empty lots and boarded-up buildings. (Grab a snack and buckle in — this video’s a long one.)
