    Better days behind it...

    These buildings will likely be demolished whether or not Chicago receives the Olympics -- and they certainly will be if it does.

      Is this through a window?
      Or did you get inside?

      Great series of photographs, David!

      Thank you. It's a great complex.

      @E.L.A., mainly yes, although I don't know exactly when this building closed. Other buildings are in much better shape.

      @Don, this is through a window. It'd be great to get inside, but security doesn't seem to keen on letting people in.

      Security has cracked down drastically, I understand. I think they noticed that tons of photos from inside were showing up online...

      Some parts of the complex have already been abandoned for nearly 20 years, even though the hospital isn't yet completely shut down.
