"I hate my developer" is the tag line of a fascinating blog that chronicles the days of a woman who bought into a troubled condo development in East Woodlawn. She writes under the name of the Woodlawn Wonder, a phrase she adopted because she wonders about life in her neighborhood.

The Woodlawn Wonder describes herself as an ordinary person. To gain any understanding of who she is, and her determination, you ought to read her blog as I've done with some regularity for the past several years. You'll quickly learn that she's one of the many ordinary wonders who make Chicago a great city.

We met today over lunch and then walked her neighborhood, including the small plot she tends at the urban garden in Jackson Park. Join us for the first part of our walk.
