The Best Photos Around Chicago this Week

We take a look back at this past week through reader-submitted photos

Welcome to Curbed Chicago’s Friday Photo Flashback, a segment in which we highlight reader photos of the Windy City’s urban fabric. For a chance to have your photos featured, be sure to share them in the Curbed Chicago Flickr pool!

↑ Here’s a pair of unusual homes found on West Cullerton Avenue. The one-story residences appear to be smaller siblings of the classic Chicago greystone that can be found throughout the city. Photo uploaded by Debbie Mercer on June 14.

↑ Construction crews accidentally struck a downtown gas line which required the attention of emergency responders. The incident, which happened near State and Randolph, did not cause any injuries. Photo uploaded by Milosh Kosanovich on June 15.

↑ Chicago’s Chase Tower was lit up in rainbow colors to show solidarity with the victims of last weekend’s mass shooting in Orlando. The modernist tower joined many others throughout the world in donning the bright colors to show support for Orlando. Photo taken by Seth Anderson on June 14.

↑ Oracle Team USA joined others from around the world to compete in the America’s Cup World Series last weekend on Lake Michigan. The event marked the first time in America’s Cup history where teams raced on fresh water. Photo taken by Fred Faulkner on June 10.

↑ Here we get a nice view of the historic Hairpin Lofts building the stands over the Milwaukee, Diversey, and Kimball intersection on the edge of Logan Square and Avondale. Photo taken by Steve Kuenstler on June 10.

↑ River Grove residents look to beat the heat by hanging out at the famous Gene’s & Jude’s hotdog stand. Photo taken by Irina Hynes on June 16.
