The Broken Heart of Rogers Park

Our tour of Rogers Park blogs would not be complete without this one included.

I remember a time before I started blogging. I was working very hard for nearly two years to renovate a beautiful 1920's vaudeville theater, The Adelphi. Back then, when I first learned of the threat of demolition, Craig Gernhardt supported the efforts of my non-profit organization Citizens for the Adelphi Theater and got the word out to the people of Rogers Park through his blog, The 'Broken Heart' of Rogers Park. With his support, and many others, we were able to get over 1,000 petition signatures in favor of saving the Adelphi Theater.

Later, I wrote my own blog. After 283,420 visitors and almost 1,700 articles later, here we are at Rogers Park in 1,000 Words!

The following are a few recent posts specifically about Rogers Park from The Broken Heart:
