Belmont Avenue

Walking Belmont Avenue

by John Greenfield

Back when I lived on the South Side and hadn’t explored Chicago much, Belmont Avenue was an exotic destination. One night a friend who grew up here had the blues. We hopped in her car and zoomed up Lake Shore Drive to revisit her teenage haunts near Belmont and Clark: The Alley rock and roll gear store; Scenes, a coffee shop that sold theatrical scripts; and the “Punkin’ Donuts” at Clark where wild-looking street kids hung out.
