Humboldt Park

Over spring break I went on a trip to Chicago, IL. While there, my friend and I explored Chicago with no real structured itinerary. We happened upon a park on the northeast side of Chicago I believe, called Humboldt park. This park, named after Alexander von Humboldt, is also home to a monument of Humboldt himself.

I cannot get the picture to rotate, but that is Humboldt himself. It was just funny because had we not talked about him in class recently, I would not have recognized the name or known the significance of this monument!
The park is beautiful and one should take a visit if nearby.
