When most people think of Chicago architecture, the tall downtown skyscrapers immediately come to mind. However, Chicago's residential architecture should not be discounted. Throughout many of the city's neighborhoods, turn of the century greystone single family homes and flats line the main stretches along parks and green spaces.

Thankfully, the whole thing is compressed down to just under two minutes, depicting a rather fascinating (and meticulous) time lapse.
