    Imagine one day seeing this area with 7-8 story mid rises, retail on the bottom lining the blocks. One can dream!

  2. I believe this is for the Norfolk Southern rail yard expansion project.

  3. This is so sad. My mother actually lived at 227 W 60th st and that house was demolished for the Dan Ryan. An entire neighborhood removed now. The house she was born in at 5932 Stewart was also recently demolished for this RR expansion project as well.
