Another Chicago Water Tank bites the dust

The demolition permit.

We lost another Chicago Water Tank this month.

The water tank atop Greek Islands restaurant at 200 S Halsted Street in Greektown was issued a demolition permit March 3rd. By the 12th, it was gone, leaving only the steel supports as a reminder of its existence. That, and the photos we have of it.

Better take photos of those that still remain, and soon. They’re an endangered species in Chicago.

The Tank.
The Remnant.

Enjoying the photos? Metra and CTA rides (and Amtrak trains to Milwaukee), Zipcars, Divvy Bikes, camera lenses, domain fees, snacks & energy drinks, and comfortable walking shoes add up. You can help offset expenses by making a greatly-appreciated donation to Building Up Chicago.
