Chicago’s Most Threatened Buildings List Released

LNC,

An Architecture organization, Preservation Chicago released an annual list of the seven most threatened monuments in Chicago. The list includes the seven historic buildings which are in danger of either being demolished or being lost because of neglect.

The group hopes that these historic monuments would be preserved and the city and citizens will take care of the great architectures.

The historical monuments named by them are:

This monument was built as a result of merging of two congregations, a Hungarian Congregation called as “Agudath Achim” and North Shore Congregation known as “Sons of Israel.” The construction of the building is influenced by Romanesque-Revival styles and Spanish and Art Deco.

Clarendon Park Community Center and Field House: This structure was built to give the public a constant access to the lake.
