Reagan had fond memories of Chicago apartment
When people think of Illinois places with ties to President Ronald Reagan, their thoughts likely run to central parts of the state.
But Reagan also lived in Chicago. He spent a year at an apartment in President Barack Obama's neighborhood of Hyde Park from 1914 to 1915 when he was 3 or 4.
Reagan would have turned 100 Sunday. Centennial celebrations have been held around the country.
The six-flat Chicago building where the Reagans lived is vacant. There's no plaque to mark its history.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Reagan had fond memories of the place.
In a 1988 letter, he described watching horse-drawn firefighters gallop down his street.
Reagan was born in the central Illinois town of Tampico, grew up in Dixon and Monmouth and attended college in Eureka.
