Last fall, I discovered this article about the famed (and torn down) Edgewater Beach Hotel: www.compassrose.org/uptown/EdgewaterMemories.html, and the accompanying apartments (photographed here). The apartments were built in 1929.
My neighborhood apparently used to be the ritz, lined with beautiful mansions and trees. Now, N. Sheridan Rd. is lined with mostly high-rises lining Lake Michigan and mid-century-modern four-plus-one apartment structures.
Edgewater, Chicago, Illinois.
