Chicago Streetscape: Armitage & Sheffield

I took advantage of today's fine weather to snap a few shots of the Armitage/Sheffield area in the far SW corner of Chicago's Lincoln Park/DePaul neighborhood, just over two miles North of the Loop (CBD). This is a classically handsome Chicago streetscape that dates to around the time of the Great Chicago Fire. All shots are within a one-block radius of the intersection of Armitage & Sheffield, and the Armitage Brown Line stop on the El.


Here is the main intersection:

Looking towards the Brown Line Armitage El Station:


Looking towards Halstead:










Very green, at least in the Summer!:




Not uncommon to see these wonderful supports for corner towers:
















Spring cleaning:




Love this building! Look for Green Man in the second pic:












Uggo reclad & some new construction:

Grrrl Cruisin':










Thanks for looking

^ Argo has some decent tea (more of a tea joint, really, than a coffee joint, at least down here). Wow - they must be franchising fast.
