Cape Hayes Soundex Code H200

The small, almost indiscernible, point of land that juts into Lake Michigan on the southeast border of Rogers Park is not particularly remarkable from a topographical perspective. This area was once called Cape Hayes and its official boundaries were the lake on the east, Devon Avenue on the south, Sheridan Road on the West and Pratt Boulevard on the north. The Cape was a desolate area that contained little more than windswept sand dunes and scrub oaks until the early 1900s.
