Variety-show jokes aside, does anyone know the story of this home? It’s on the 2100 block of South Prairie Avenue in the South Loop, near the future home of Prairie 21, and it looks downright naked with only vacant lots on each side.

As you can see in these photos, the house is quite close to McCormick Place. It’s also managed to escape demolition, despite the fact that it doesn’t lie within the protected boundaries of the Prairie Avenue District.
