Tearing down the History of Rogers Park

About the Pay-To-Play Historic Wisdom Bridge Theatre teardown:



Joe Moore and Rich Aronson, tearing up our neighborhood again!

Now, whose great idea is it to put a mixed-use building (another storefront), on empty-storefront Howard Street? Nearly every storefront in Rogers Park along Howard Street is completely empty.

You know, the condo skyscraper at Howard (nearly a block away), went into foreclosure shortly after it opened. What makes Rich Aronson's cookie cutter condos any better?


This post that I read recently, sums it up nicely: http://fortysomething-politics.blogspot.com/2008/05/evanstons-howard-street-condos-view.html


Wisdom Bridge Theatre
1557-61 W. Howard Street
Chicago, IL. 60626

btw: I'm treating this one like the Adelphi Theater.
