Children at Play in the Streets for Halloween Party!

On October 30, 2022, a leaderless collective of parents came together to put on an amazing free event for the neighborhood! From getting local business to sponsor food, using past profits from the Summer Block Party on Dogleg to cover some expenses, to working to coordinate, spreading the word, decorating trunks, finding power for the sound system, they were able to bring back a bit of life to the often silence of the Shepherd Lane Park!

Small groups of people can do great things when their cause is clear and all are working towards the same ends. Collectives are an amazing organizing strategy to achieve real results. Congrats to all worked to achieve such a successful event! Inspiring!

Thank you Laura, Shervin, Munesh, and Kanika for the pictures and videos!

The Nearly Extinct Levitt & Sons Ranch House

One of the last remaining Levitt & Sons ranch houses are being knocked down to be replaced by a fancy new house. Few in original condition remain. This one on IU Willets Road even still had the television antenna.

Several scattered throughout the neighborhood still exist. Hopefully some will be preserved…

Comment with the address of any original, or close to original, remaining ranch houses so they can be photographed and added to this list.
