Life behind and in front of the lens.

Cook County Hospital, My life began here.

Living in Chicago is a very good thing for those of us that love it here. Some may dispute that New York or Los Angeles is better but when you Bleed hot dogs with no ketchup, Italian beef dipped with hot peppers, and Chicago style pizza who can top that? The fact that were broke bothers me because everything here is being sold to the highest bidder. I took a picture of Cook County Hospital not only because the architecture is AMAZING but also my life began there. This is one of those must have things to put in the photo album just because……….

    I wasn’t born here but I certainly remember this place well from my childhood. Cook County Hospital has some of the best doctors in the world and still does to this day!

    This photograph is awesome and has me feeling very nostalgic and a bit sad. Sad only because it seems as though the building was abandoned simply due to age. All old things shouldn’t be disgarded for new and improved. New and improved is not always better.

    Thanks for the memories you’ve brought back with your imagary.

    what a fantastic building. Why not gut the inside and remodel the interior to suit the 21century not demolish because its an outdated facility
