As part of the initial research, I would like to find as many photographs of Yorkville as possible. If you have photos of Yorkville (from any era), please send me an email stating what sorts of photos you have. My email is Thanks very much!

Why I started this web log

For some time, I have been wondering how best to deal with the gradual destruction of the historic old neighborhood in which I grew up. I've been working on putting together a documentary film, trying to start a historical society, and writing an essay/article. I decided that the quickest way to get the info out would be to start a blog in which I could post my article as I write it. Also, if there are others out there who want to contribute, this forum will allow them to do so.
