Our Morgan Street (1000 west) was one of the many neighborhoods within the boundaries of the legendary Taylor Street’s “Little ltaly.” Two blocks east of us was the well known Taylor and Halsted area with its bustling shopping district. Halsted Street (800 west) was the equivalent of a giant outdoor shopping mall where the residents throughout Taylor Street’s Little Italy did their major shopping. One block west of us was Sheridan Park. The boundaries of Taylor Street’s Little Italy extended as far west as Western Avenue (2400 west).
