Cabrini-Green Public Housing Complex
Non-Commercial Use Permitted

Located in the Near Northside of Chicago, Cabrini-Green was a housing project that was implemented in 1942 and was extended various times during the 1950s and 1960s. The public housing project quickly became synonymous with the problems of urban renewal. The project faced many of the problems that Longwood faced; mismanagement and poorly built structures. Many of the original structures have been demolished.
