1104 S. Wabash Ave.

1104 S Wabash Ave, Chicago, IL 60605

1104 S. Wabash Ave., built in 1891, is a City of Chicago Landmark (1996) and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (1980). Built by William LeBaron Jenney, acknowledged as the inventor of the skyscraper for his fire-proofed metal skeleton-frame designs, the Ludington building represents his continuing experimentation as the first entirely terra cotta-clad skyscraper. The Ludington is also a rare survivor, one of only two extant loft buildings in Chicago built by Jenney.

I had a great time to hang out with some of ASL interpretation students and friends. Last year, they didn't provide this event. Foods was good with few cupcakes.

Such an informative meeting! Sam Bahour discussed aspects about the conflict that I was not previously familiar with. Such as holds on Palestinian commerce, and personal experiences trying to navigate the check points when on his way to work, or business meetings and the challenges that come along with being singled out for being a Palestinian. Great event!
