4230 1/2-4234 and 4236 S. Archer Avenue – two adjacent buildings with matching facades.

6901 S. Halsted Street – green brick striping punctuated by terra cotta medalions. The building contains apartments above and four retail outlets at the street level. The Family Loan Corporation was a long-time tenant, from the late 1940s through the 1950s. A liquor store came later, in the 1960s.

711 W. 47th Street – another curious specimen, a wood framed house tarted up with masonry accents at the street. The house is likely much older than the other buildings in this post, which likely date from the 1910s.

2209 W. Cermak Road, at far right – another apartment-over-storefront configuration. It was a music store in 1919...

3311 W. Montrose Avenue – Chicago Import, Inc. The storefront has been infilled with blonde brick, and the limestone panels in the center appear to be a Mid Century addition.

2107 N. Cleveland Avenue – Custom Hair Lounge + Spa – the green brick is merely a small accent amid handsome corbelling...

6241 N. Broadway, Uptown – Green Element Resale. Like the Casino Theater, this building has lost its upper parapet wall – as evidenced by a geometric design that is abruptly sliced off at the roofline. It was the Leon Beloian Rug Company in 1981.

3707 W. 26th Street. Civic Savings and Loan in 1957. Vanek Travel Service in 1960. Mena Mexico Travel Agency...

    I cannot quite decide whether fragmentation within the gangs is a good thing or not. Heffalump mentioned seeing new gang tags in the area, which does speak to the number of gang factions that have proliferated over the years. The lack of central control that governed the Latin Kings, Gangster Disciples, etc. has created a lot of rogue elements. Strength in numbers has been replaced with armament. It used to be "Folks" versus "People" but there is intra-gang warfare which makes the whole thing really unpredictable.
