Attached is a side by side comparison of a 12 block by 4 block radius in the West Englewood and Lakeview neighborhoods of Chicago. These maps reflect the abandoned buildings, vacant lots, corner stores, and other food retail establishments within each radius. While West Englewood and Lakeview are only 15 miles apart from each other, in terms of access to food and resources for development, there is a stark contrast between the two neighborhoods.
