PDF Download: Preservation Chicago’s 2004 Chicago 7 Most Endangered Booklet

Imagine living in a city under siege. You start each day not knowing whose block will be hit, or if a neighbor’s house will be reduced to rubble before even returning home from work. Imagine watching helplessly as, day by day, your beloved neighborhood disappears before your eyes.

This was what daily life in the East Village neighborhood was like in 2004 when it was listed as one of the 7 Most Threatened places in 2004.  However, the creation of a landmark district in 2005 helped to stabalize parts of the area.  Read about that  community success.
