Let's Get Presidential

Curbed's readers have spoken! The Obama Presidential Library, were it to be located in Chicago, should land at the old Michael Reese hospital site in Bronzeville. This location was chosen by a 2:1 margin over the University of Chicago campus. However, dissenting voices targeting sites not listed had many good things to say about putting the library at Garfield and MLK Drive, on a large vacant plot beside Washington Park. Others thought the area "too rough" or too remote, even though it's well served by transit and close to U Chicago. Remoteness also did in the South Works redevelopment site, despite its lofty promise. Now we wait for announcements before finding another facet to debate. [Curbed Polls]
