Feds Give Props To South Branch

A condensed portion of the South Branch of the Chicago River has been named to the National Register of Historic Places, reports The Tribune. OK, the river itself isn't on the Register but the industrial buildings along its banks at Cermak are. Dubbed the Cermak Road Bridge Historic District, the large factory loft buildings contained within are the target of an artist live-work initiative. Another main feature is the double-leaf Scherzer rolling lift bridge— the last of its kind in the city. [Trib, previously]
