Tom, I live near and ride around just about everything on your upcoming tour of Canaryville, Bridgeport and Pilsen.  It's excellent.  You have selected a great many highlights of the area.  The containers are hilarious.  I'm not certain exactly where they are, but they remind me of what I see on 47th Street around Halsted or Morgan.  One tiny point:  I think it's Ping Tom Park, not Tom Ping.  A cool place.  It took me a while to figure out how to get in there.  Have a great ride!
