Question:
I ran across this article on the web from 1966;

http://www.newton.dep.anl.gov/natbltn/200-299/nb247.htm

I live near 159th and Harlem (Chicago), and have long had a fascination with Dawn Redwood. The article does not identify where I could find one, other than "For a mile or more along each side of Harlem Avenue..." Is there one somewhere near me that is easily accessible?
