Take a walking tour of Boystown with Your Guide and YoChicago’s Joe Askins. Part 5 – The homes on Melrose

Nettlehorst School


Your Guide went on a walking tour of the Boystown Neighborhood with YoChicago’s Joe  Askins last week.  We walked past the Nettlehorst School just as school let out which offered the perfect opportunity to talk about the transformation of the neighborhood from the Gay Ghetto into the Premium North Side Neighborhood that it is today.

As we continued west on Melrose, we talked about all the different styles of housing offered on Melrose – from modest to deluxe.
