About the Image
This photo is part of a decades long series documenting the changes in Chicago’s urban landscape. My hope is to preserve the memory of what was changing or disappearing.
The 666 Lounge sat proudly on State Street in Chicago’s South Loop area, a vestige of the old days when the neighborhood was a center of the printing industry. It eventually fell to the wrecking ball along with the Pacific Garden Mission its next door neighbor to the North to make way for a new public high school in the more upscale neighborhood.
