Forgotten voices

Down North Hudson Avenue on Chicago’s Near North Side, the remaining Frances Cabrini Rowhouses invoke a haunting memory of the community that once existed in the area. When the last Cabrini-Green high-rise was demolished in 2011, all that remained of the vast public housing complex were the rowhouses. The Chicago Housing Authority had plans to renovate the units for displaced residents, but most of the rowhouses are still boarded up and caged behind tall chain-link fences. Walking through the rowhouses, it is hard not to wonder about the lives and stories that make up Cabrini-Green’s history.
