First published in 1991, the Chicago Neighborhoods Map #1 was created in response to requests by the National Association of Realtors, who had seen the publisher's Chicago Archdiocese Map and wanted to know if they could create something similar, but a map that delineated the boundaries of the many "neighborhoods" that comprise the city limits of Chicago proper. The map was very successful and is still, to this day, quite popular and fun. There is an index of neighborhoods on the map, where each neighborhood can be located by means of letter and number coordinates along the margins of the map. Unframed size is 27 x 39. It will ship to you in a strong tube packed inside a rectangular box to make sure it gets there in one piece.
