Walking With Ghosts in the Illinois Medical District


The wind whips and whistles between the buildings of the Illinois Medical District. Generators that power hospitals hum and hiccup against the shadows cast by the old and new structures. There are echoes of the long-forgotten West Side Park. And the hulking, vacant, and elegant Cook County Hospital stands guard against it all.
