Those pics of the south loop streetscape cause me to hum the "Welcome Back, Kotter" song

Great pictures. Funny how after only living in the city for 1 year, I recognize the location of most of those pictures. Unfortunately, many of your pictures are from the winter, which is getting me depressed already

I especially like the pic of Ronnie's Steakhouse. I've had many a lunch there. It will truly be missed. It's now just an empty lot with some gravel.

It would have been nice, of course, if you'd disclosed that these are all my photos. I noticed this thread because 800 mb were slurped from my site in one day, which is far more than usual. I really don't mind you linking or anything, it's just that it's not polite to not attribute...

For my other photos, go here: neighborhoods.chicago.il.us
