2nd Trip, 2 Neighborhood Landmarks

Yesterday I walked to two landmarks in my neighborhood; Wrigley Field and Engine Company #78 on Waveland Avenue. The engine company is still in use, but is not very architecturally impressive.

Wrigley Field is directly across Waveland from the firehouse. If you've only seen Wrigley Field by watching a Cubs game, you might think that the outside looks like a classic ballpark. But actually the facade is covered with prefab concrete slabs and chain-link fencing. There are even temporary office trailers parked out front. From the outside it looks more like a cross between a storage facility and a minimum security prison.

Hopefully, my photography skills will improve as this project goes on...
Only 350 landmarks left!
