Lake Meadows and Michael Reese are the big questions and will probably be the final push.

Perceptions of safety are changing. I see women jogging alone on 31st street every day. Northsiders will be the last to know.
And there's no shortage of people biking down King Drive all the way to Hyde Park. The development is certainly in pockets but progress seems steady.
