“When we moved to Cabrini, it was like moving to a palace. The houses were much better, the bedrooms, the bathrooms, everything. When we moved out, we wept. We were kids, we didn’t know nothing better than this neighborhood. When we moved to the South Side we found out it was a whole new world out there.” –Patricia Van Pelt-Watkins, at Cabrini Green
