It's finally cooling off and now it's time to talk about Oktoberfest! @berghoffchicago has it from now until October 7th with live music and specials. This Butternut Squash Lasagna with manchego, grilled asparagus and glazed walnuts is a MUST when you visit. It's delicious and was by far my favorite. The blog is updated 👆🏼on my entire dining experience with a little history lesson 😃. Such a Chicago icon, it's definitely a place to stop in to try some of the contemporary and Old World dishes yourself 😜 #theberghoff #oktoberfest #lasagna  #ontheblog #chicagogrammers

It is 1923 and Chicago Elevated Railways car #4252 had just been received from its builder, Cincinnati Car Company. The 4251-4455 group of 4000-series cars featured the newest amenities of the time, including plush seats and electric fans for the passengers’ comfort and new shaded lighting.

Cars 4271 and 4272 from this series are kept in operating condition and on CTA property as part of our Heritage Fleet program! http://transitchicago.com/heritagefleet

An Adler & Sullivan gem sits 2 blocks from my home and I finally visited it. They claim a lot of Frank Lloyd Wright influence on the design, as he was a draftsman for the firm at the time, but I dismiss these claims. #adlerandsullivan #charnleyhouse #chicago #goldcoast #architecture #architecturelovers #architecturephotography #chicagoarchitecture #franklloydwright #astorstreet #astorstreetchicago #design #historicstructure #chicagohistory
Founded in 1892 as the Elm Street Mother’s Club, the Hamlin Park Woman’s Club focused its attention on community service, English classes for second language learners, and public welfare among other issues. In 1928, the Chicago Tribune noted, “One of the most interesting features of the club schedule is the problem department, which, as its name indicates, is a symposium in which the problems of the community are discussed and often solved, following each meeting.” Photo of the club taken about 1915, and it is part of the Ravenswood-Lake View Community Collection at Chicago Public Library via Chicago Collections. #womenshistory #chicagohistory #chicago #chicagocollections

A century ago retail tycoon Aaron Montgomery Ward fought local businesses that wanted to build on land that is today’s Grant Park. That fight lasted 20 years and went all the way to the US Supreme Court. Most cities have shipping docks or luxury condos along their waterfronts. Chicago is not most cities.

St. John Cantius parish is looking forward to hosting visitors with the Chicago Architectural Foundation's Open House Chicago on the weekend of October 14-15.  Priests and Brothers from the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius will be offering tours.

Designed by Adolphus Druiding and completed in 1898, St. John Cantius Church took five years to build and is one of the best examples of sacred architecture in the city. The unique baroque interior has remained intact for more than a century and is known for both its opulence and grand scale—reminiscent of the sumptuous art and architecture of 18th century Krakow.

This is an excellent opportunity to see the results from years of restoration work including the newly restored 4 story tall High Altar which is traced to the 1893 Columbian Exposition.

I frequently pass by 1435 Astor and still shake my head in wonder. The former O.W. Meysenburg Mansion (1892, Thomas & Rapp - with a 1902 Henry Ives Cobb addition that matched in detailing and materials exactly the original for second owner David B. Jones) has gone from a single family home to apartments, to condominiums, and back to a single family (at 20,000 square feet, mind you) manse again. I remember the days when the gates were rusted and their hinges were pulling away from the columns - which were leaning precariously. The place had a dramatic decayed grandeur to it back then, but it’s heartening to see it restored. #chicagohistory #chicagoarchitecture

Sitting on the edge of Old Town, this building has long intrigued me. For the better part of 25 years, I've known it as the Ruben Salazar (Ruben Salazar Elementary Bilingual Education Center) School, and of course given the Italianette style of the building, I knew it had a history. 
This is actually one of the city's oldest public school buildings. In 1881, members of the Board of Education determined that the city needed three high schools to accommodate the growing population of older students. At this corner: Wells and Wendell (then considered the city’s North Side), they built what was first known as North Division High School. School architect J.S. Ender designed the 3-1/2 story Italianate style high school, and it opened in September of 1883. 
By 1899 the school was overcrowded, and the decision was made to close it and transfer their students elsewhere. (Incidentally, one of the basement rooms had been equipped for use as a manual training and woodworking room, making North Division one of the first vocational training schools in Chicago.) In 1902, the building reopened as Sexton Elementary School, named for James A. Sexton (1844–1899), an orphan who became a successful manufacturer. The building served as an elementary school for many years, and in 1964 Sexton also housed an Educational and Vocational Guidance Center.

The school’s elementary function ceased in 1966, and the building closed in 1974 for the second time. Four years later, it reopened as the Center for Urban Education (which is carved in granite above the main entrance, explaining that mystery to me), a planning, conference, and training facility for teachers and students. That same year, the Board of Education thoroughly rehabilitated the school. which was designated a Chicago landmark.

Salazar moved in in 1993, and continues healthily to this day. If you look closely, you will see one of the workmen who are in the process of replacing the school windows. 
With so many school closings and the constant approval of demolition permits, it's heartening to see this bright spot, now literally right in my back yard. #chicagohistory

Built in 1869, these structures survived the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. I captured these photos over the summer. It was the first time I had ever been up close to the structures. They are amazing and beautiful. #historicpreservation #savingplaces #thisplacematters #chicago #chicagohistory #greatchicagofire

Great Divide

A bridge between the neighborhoods of Bronzeville and Bridgeport, seen from within the vacant Main Building of the Armour Institute. This boundary has been home to some of Chicago's most extreme racial tensions, including the unprovoked beating of a black teenager named Lenard Clark twenty years ago. The Armour Institute was established as a place to bring people from all walks of life into learning, but at the border of these two very different neighborhoods, it has failed to facilitate the equity sought by its founders.

From our historical archives: Heading east on 120th from Morgan in 1955, a Green Hornet on the #36 Broadway (what was then the longest streetcar line in the city) begins a 24-mile trip to Devon/Clark. By the end of the year, the route had been divided in two, and streetcars were replaced on the southern portion with buses, which looped downtown via Wacker, Wabash, and Grand back to State. 
Until buses took over the northern portion of the route 14 months later, #36 streetcars operated south on State to Polk, looping via Dearborn and Kinzie back to State. Built by the St. Louis Car Company, #4396 was one of the last PCC cars delivered to CTA in 1948. Parts from 570 of the cars were later used by the St. Louis Company to build CTA’s 6000-series rapid transit cars.

We asked Hazel: What does it mean to curate for a Chicago audience?

Back in the late '90s, Aurora-based @montezdedurango helped create a new genre of music called "Duranguense" that fused traditional roots Mexican music with fast-paced '80s synthesizers. The result? Audience members invented a dance to go along with the music called the "pasito duranguense," a faster version of the polka-like "Norteño" with added hip and stomping movements. Check out that and other Chicago-invented dances on our site and Facebook page! #tbt #chicagohistory #dance #duranguense #pasitoduranguense
