Odd and Even House Numbering exception?
I always thought that the house numbering scheme in Chicago was: Odd numbers on the East and South sides of the street, even numbers on the West and North sides of the street.
But recently I found myself traveling north on Clark Street on the #22 bus. We were in that section between Division Street and North Avenue commonly known as Sandburg Village. Looking out the window, what to my wondering eyes should appear but ODD numbers on the buildings on the WEST side of the street. I couldn't see out the other window to be sure about the east side of the street, and haven't had a chance to go back there to check it out.
Is this some sort of exception to the rule? Or was I duped about there ever being a rule in the first place?
PS - don't need answer fast.
