Google Plus photo collections for Oak Park, IL

I saved some more photos to a Google Plus collection for public use.

“The Forest Park, IL various photos collection”: https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/84YWJE

“Construction in Oak Park, Illinois” various photos collection: https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/wgeVJE

The First collection is my first photo dump of Some of the things in Forest Park, IL nothing really major, just some of the stuff I have talked about in the previous blogs, like FP police, Bed Bath and Beyond, but now including the Repainted Forest Park Circle Avenue bridge next to the Ferrera Pan factory. I took most of the photos travelling through the suburb so they were taken quite quickly, I am just glad they were in focus!

The second one is a photo dump of the Construction near Lake Street and Harlem Avenue, especially near the Marion Avenue side street and adjacent parking lots. Just took a bunch of pictures as I walked through one day onto my way to Jerusalem Café which I talk about in my Yelp reviews.

Again, I took the photos for public consumption use anywhere or anyhow that you may. Bitches.

Oak Park, IL related: Forest Park, IL part 1

When you go through Forest Park to get or from Oak Park, IL you enter another type of bland hell. Besides the McDonald’s that is excellent there, Smokin Ms and what was once Defiant comics. There are no real stops, awesome places to hang out in Forest Park (like Oak Park, IL), unless you like cemeteries. There is a fun fact about one of the cemeteries there but that’s for Halloween.

Anyway, I simply drive thru this little shit hole, I lived there for about a year and a half or so I know what I am talking about. You could probably transport dead hookers on the roof of your car at night and you wouldn’t bump into anyone. The town is very quiet, as in dead. Only the cops there are active since they have very little to do. Therefore, you have cops stationing cars at the 7-eleven at Roosevelt Avenue and Des Plaines Avenue and the bank on Roosevelt Avenue and Circle Avenue.

Then you have them just riding around making cop traps waiting for people to do a California roll through stop signs or drivers doing 2mph over the speed limit. Mind you it is not that big a town. The town of forest park is just that, a bunch of bored cops, no engaging nightlife, and another town with nothing cool to do. In one word: Boring. (Did I mention a robust elderly population?) Oh, it also has the CTA Blue Line stop and a ghetto ass Walmart if that’s your idea of fun or excitement, then cool Forest Park is for you. But for me, I will wait about another 50 years.
