I wonder what this building has seen in the last 136 years. Chicago has some of the coolest buildings, this one is a block away from ours. It has had a sign on it that it would be renovated for as long as we have lived here.
I am amazed at how many old buildings and factories sit empty in Chicago. I guess as industry has moved out of this country many of these buildings are no longer needed. This lovely buildings eventual fate will be another condo in the neighborhood. Who knows what will happen to all those empty brick factories and warehouses I see on the west side of Chicago.
