Chicago's New York Life Building Under Threat from Really Poor Ideas

Preservation Online reports an update on the threat to Chicago's New York Life Building.

Representative quote:

"You won't allow someone to add a dormer to their cottage, but you're going to allow a skyscraper on top of the New York Life Building?" asks Jonathan Fine, president of Preservation Chicago, which included the structure on its 2002 list of "Chicago's Seven Most Threatened Buildings."
