BlockWalks - Prairie and Central, in Evanston

Evanston is the most urban of Chicago's North Shore suburbs, and the intersection of Prairie Ave and Central St rivals all but the most pedestrian-friendly city neighborhoods.

Within a short walk along Central and Prairie you'll find a variety of restaurants, boutique shops, galleries, neighborhood services, a lovely park, and the Metra station connecting to downtown Chicago and points north of Evanston.

Local correspondent Mike Stern, who manages Koenig & Strey's Evanston office, was my tour guide this morning. We stopped in Independence Park, where the 56th Annual Garden Fair and plant sale will be held this weekend, May 21st and 22nd, and also stopped at two restaurants where Mike dines frequently, Jacky's and Prairie Joe's.
