Then and Now, Burling-Wrightwood

1911–Burling Street @ Wrightwood Avenue, view south
2023–the same location

We are a few blocks northeast of the Lincoln-Halsted-Fullerton intersection.  This was already prime real estate in 1911.  Fashionable residences line the street.

Today some of the older buildings here have been replaced.  Many of the front lawns and parkways have been fenced in, too.  Still a nice place to live.
