Chicago's Gold Coast Says Bye to Poor Neighbor

Just a few blocks from Chicago's affluent Gold Coast, the infamous Cabrini-Green Public Housing Project will soon be no more. On Thursday, the last highrise resident of what was once 15,000 people spread across 23 highrises and row houses on a 70-acre site, moved out.

Annie Ricks, 54, moved into Cabrini in 1990, two years after a rented house she lived in burned down, leaving her homeless, reported the Wall Street Journal.
