2128 N Halsted (north of Armitage), circa 1987, Chicago.

This 1888 building must have a curse - no retailer seems to be able to stay in business here. Its been vacant for the last 5 years.

Although, it does have a second life as an event space - Just last year I attended a wedding on the roof. A really cool building.
