A Chicago group is touring the city’s 77 neighborhoods as a way to explore what unites them and what can be done to improve those communities.

23-year-old Robert Jackson, a recent college graduate, came up with the idea.

So far, they’ve visited Bronzeville, Humboldt Park and six other communities.  It will take over a year to complete the project.

The group of about 15 is spending an estimated $25 a week to tour some of the neighborhoods.  They are keeping a blog with their findings.

Next week they will hit the Ashburn neighborhood.
