Livin' on a Prairie (Avenue)

author: Franny Wentzel : Chicago, Illinois


image 51951
Before the turn of the previous century Prairie Avenue on the South side of Chicago was a neighbourhood of fine homes including one of the more historic works of architecture... By the 1950s it was a seedy shadow of itself... Remarkably, a few old manses managed to survive in what was a largely industrial area. The area was only steps away from the McCormick Place exhibition grounds and in the last quarter century has seen quite a turnaround. Amazingly, a good portion of the new buildings have revived late 19th/early 20th century forms. A look at some of the plucky survivors. This house was hauled...

Existential Crisis at the Bus Station

image 51812
Was downtown a couple months ago and whilst taking pictures to update previous postings we came upon this little incident... An ambulance had shown up.. ...for reasons yet to be determined so we lingered to see what would happen. A man was brought out and planted on a bench. He was going through some crisis... ...that required his yelling and gesticulating to the audience of paramedics and fire fighters that had gathered around him. As our bus was about to depart, we were obliged to leave him to his existential angst...

Schenectady's Civic Center - City Hall

author: Franny Wentzel : Schenectady, NY


image 51423
It would seem more an accident than design that Schenectady has something of a civic center... With the possible exception of the library and police headquarters none of these building were constructed with the idea of being part of a whole... Googlesat view of City Hall - our first stop on this tour... Was constructed just as the Great Depression was getting under way. Political detracters called it the 'Million Dollar Place. View from the Jay Street side. Rear view from Clinton Street which like Jay was widened...
