did alot of nice old buildings get torn down?
like that 1872 cottage?
i must have missed that part,
cuz i thought this building set was going on mainly a parking lot,

i think its a mistake to get rid of the village atmosphere of this area,
and making too samey, BIG MISTAKE,

why do i like chicago?
for its weather?
nope,
for the new sterile areas like what happened to maxwell street?
nah.
for its old buildings and interesting neigborhoods?
yep, cant find anything else like it,
and why people want to destroy that which is unique about chicago
is BEYOND ME.

the biggest mistake is getting rid of that 1872 cottage,
a year after the fire, and chicago takes a dump on it,
great city of chicago and mayor, just great.

^ Dude, get over it already and move to Boston if cute little 19th century villages are what you want. Sheesh. Chicago's skyline wasn't built by people who didn't want to tear down old wooden shacks and take a chance.

For the love of God, I'm a preservationist too but how can you expect old wooden homes to survive downtown?

That 1872 cottage most likely displaced a 1697 teepee. I don't hear you complaining about those long lost teepees. Things change; societies evolve. Buildings evolve too, and become bigger and better. Deal with it!
