June 2 Printers' Row, Dearborn and Harrison


The green of Humboldt Park was refreshing last Saturday, as the rain stayed away, but this week the group can meet in the city for a different challenge. There is a Starbucks at the corner of Dearborn and Harrison where people can meet before and after.

This neighborhood has dramatic views of the old Dearborn Street train station, and there is the Franklin Building, 720 S. Dearborn, that has mosaics designed and executed by Oskar Gross, a longtime member of the Palette and Chisel.

Mapquest will take you there.

(Above is the old Dearborn Street station before it suffered a fire in 1922. The peak on the clock tower was not replaced after the fire, which is pictured below.)
