Then and Now, Division-Crosby

Our location is just east of Halsted Street.  In 1953 Ogden Avenue crossed through the area on a viaduct.  The neighborhood was mostly industrial then.  Low-rise public housing was already in place to the south, and construction of high-rises was about to begin to the north—the result would be the Cabrini-Green Homes.

The Ogden Avenue viaduct was torn down during the 1990s.  More recently, the high-rises of Cabrini-Green have been torn down.  The area has been gentrifying.
