Goodbye, Cabrini-Green

The Cabrini-Green Housing Projects in Chicago, Illinois were some of the worst examples of the public housing towers era. This stop motion video captures the demolition of one of the last buildings left in the redevelopment process.

From www.Cabrini-Green.com: "The Cabrini-Green Housing Projects in Chicago, Illinois are some of the most infamous in the country. Decades of poverty and violence have rendered them near inhabitable. They are currently being demolished and the residents are being relocated. Some will move near-by into brand new condos, some will get transplanted around the Chicagoland area, and some, inevitably will become homeless. I will post photos and paintings of the neighborhood periodically to show the transformation."
