What’s happening at the Lathrop Homes

The clouds were just beginning to break apart earlier today when I stood on the bridge over the Chicago River at Diversey Pkwy. Viewed through a telephoto lens the Loop skyline appears to loom over the Lathrop Homes, more than 3 miles distant.

The Chicago News Cooperative has an update on the status of the 37-acre development that sprawls along a wide stretch of the river north and south of Diversey. The northern half of the development has been vacated, but the green spaces are being carefully maintained and patrolled by a private security firm.
