Why don't most Chicago newscasters know the names of southside neighborhoods? We are Beverly, South Shore, Chatham, Pullman, Mt. Greenwood, Bridgeport, Pilsen, and more. When a crime happens on the 'southside' or the 'southwestside', it happens in a neighborhood with a name and a community, just like our friends to the north in Lincoln Park, Old Town, Rogers Park, and others they seem to know so well. Our southside neighborhoods also have names, please learn them, use them, and if you’re to represent our great city, love them : )
