Michael Reese Hospital

The Chicago Tribune's Blair Kamin notes that a Chicago commission has declined to recommend Michael Reese Hospital for landmark status. Much of the south side campus was created beginning in the mid-1940s, with a prime motivation being the rehabilitation of “slum” areas. The photos above from 2003 and August of 2009 show the destruction of several beautiful trees in front of now-vacant structures.
