Barack Obama's House - Kenwood - Chicago by Mark 2400.

This is Senator Obama’s house, now protected by the U.S. Secret Service, but not when this was taken on April 15, 2007. (Our tour of the Kenwood neighborhood actually began on the sidewalk in front of the house so we could get a better look at the synagouge across the street. )

The lot on the left is the subject of the “Rezko” deal. Rezko bought the lot for the asking price, and the Obamas got $300,000 off the asking price. Rezko was recently found guilty of “influence peddling” related charges in the federal court in Chicago.

I had a discussion with one of my co-workers (who lives in Hyde Park and has never bothered to walk past the Senator’s house) about the changes that might occur to this street if Obama actually wins the presidency. No doubt, the street would be closed to traffic, and pedestrians would be restricted. I’d bet that no one will be able to park on this street for a long time.

Of course, the Obamas haven’t owned this house very long, nor are Senator Obama’s roots in Chicago very deep. I’d bet they unload this place pretty quickly if he wins.
