Subject: [IRISH-IN-CHICAGO] Another Chicago Flop House?
Date: Tue, 8 May 2007 02:23:21 EDT

To Nan Brennan,, Patti Meyers, Maureen N, Carmen DiGiacomo, et. al.:
Many thanks to all for answering my query about Madison Street. Now
another similar question has arisen.
A relative was listed in the 1930 census as living at 66 West Van Buren
Street (the Vestibule Hotel) along with over 300 other single men. Was West
Van Buren in the "skid row" area of Chicago. And was this address indeed a
flop house?
Regards, Ed O'Hara
