    Chicago brainiacs

    There is a lot of intention behind city planning. Knowing the rules and constants helps me as a driver. Here's one just out of curiosity. Why are streets on the south side generally referred to by number (72nd Street, 72nd Place), while on the north side, chiefly by name (Touhy Ave, Chase Ave)?

    Did things improve this week?
