Chicago's Old-School MapQuest-- Part 4

Edward Brennan was no expert on streets, but knew something had to be done about the mess. He drafted his plan and submitted it to the City Council. //// The plan called for: //// ***Centering all street numbers on the intersection of State and Madison streets. //// ***Giving 1,000 numbers for each mile (but before adoption, that was changed to 800 numbers). //// ***Giving odd numbers to the east side of north-south streets and to the south side of east-west streets. Even numbers to the opposite street sides. //// Some Good Thinking. --RoadDog
