Pilsen residents lose fight for field house

Community members in Pilsen protested the demolition of a field house at Whittier Elementary. It was being used as a community center for the neighborhood, but Chicago Public Schools officials said the space was unsafe and began the demolition process late Friday. We look back at the history of the field house, how the community united around it and what’s next for the land. Photo: courtesy of Linda Lutton/chicago public media
