This is not an industrial facility but a coal-fired generating station. I think it is scheduled to be shut down in 2015.
Could you picture the look on a persons face if you gave direction saying " Go two blocks and turn left right after you pass the Fountain of Shit". They would think that you were being a smart ass. Who would call this "A WORK of ART" or even better yet "A LAND MARK"??? I would call it "MARKED LAND" "LOL" JUST SAYING

Kevin your work is marvelous. You have such attention to architecture and neighborhood personality. I am an anthropologist working on a cultural history of Englewood and I am looking forward to a conversation with you about images for an upcoming NEH funded book project through the University of Illinois Press. Yet, I get steamed when I google Kennedy-King and this picture comes up. You have clearly explained that this is a building across from Kennedy-King College, but that is not what shows up on the internet. PLEASE do us all a favor and re-label this photo. Please take Kennedy-King College's name off of it, or reorder the photos so that your marvelous documentation of the campus is shown instead. This photo does a real disservice to the community, to your work, and to all of the attention and progress going on at the KKC campus. PLEASE Rename this image. By the way, the building here on 63rd and Halsted is one of the first, if not -the- first Masonic building built in the city of Chicago. It's historical status is the reason that it cannot be torn down. There is another building in the vicinity of this building that is also extremely important architecturally and historically, which is about to be repurposed. Maybe we can talk about it? But once again, please take Kennedy-King College off of the label for this photo. So that the picture of the KKC campus comes up instead. Thank you so much in advance. ---A professor who cares.
