Join us as we travel south to 95th Street. We’ll explore residential neighborhoods from the early 1900s, as well as modern institutions serving South Side communities today.
The southern route of Chicago's Red Line 'L' runs near many striking, if lesser known, works of architecture and city planning that span more than 100 years of history. From residential sites to community institutions, we’ll explore buildings designed by Charles Frost, architect of Navy Pier; Studio Gang; and Moody Nolan, the country's largest African American-owned architecture firm. Enjoy this chance to ride the train from the comfort of your own home.
