MORE ON THE BIG BLUE BUILDING
Re: Yesterday's post about the razed YMCA building.
This morning I asked at the remaining Halsted YMCA athletic facility where the families went who were served in the blue building on North Avenue. The red-shirted employee standing behind the counter said that some of the families were incorporated into the Halsted facility, and the rest moved to a new Y on Fullerton. She said that many of the families who were served at the North Avenue Y live closer to the Fullerton one, so they were pretty satisfied with the move. The YMCA absorbed the administrators who used to be located there into other facilites across the city. She had no idea how much money the Y made off the sale of the building.
