Howard Brown Health Center’s flagship store, 3651 N. Halsted St., will close its doors on Boystown later this summer for a new location in central Lakeview at 3020 N. Lincoln Ave. According to a statement from the center:

  • Yea - definitely high traffic area, it just has felt underutilized for a while. Hopefully that new Bradley-Halsted high rise is just the start of what will be lots of new development on Halsted between Addison and Grace.

  • Why don't they put a soup kitchen in there so they can draw more trash & crime to the neighborhood? The perfect extension to Center on Halsted.
