In January, one of the last of the Whites at Cabrini-Green fell to the forces of "progress," just northeast of Halsted & Division. These photos give a glimpse inside one of the notorious buildings, from a perspective we couldn't have seen while they were in operation. It's pretty fascinating the colors that people painted their apartments to make what were pretty dismal quarters more bearable. The icicles add to the composition. These photos were taken by a friend who has a more artistic eye than I, so don't hold me to that standard :-)
