[Original Airdate: February 9, 2012] John visits a neighborhood you either know well or not at all--Riverwest. New, hot businesses like Flux Design and Café Corazon, are just down the block from places that have defined the neighborhood for decades like Ma Bensch and Woodland Pattern. Gems like the Polish Falcons and St Casimir's Church have been creating community in the neighborhood for literally more than a hundred years! This episode is jam packed with co-ops and community activists, bikes, books, artists, parks, bars, clubs and yoga! Add John Gurda, and now you'll really get to know Riverwest!
