Here’s a bit of Chicago Cubs history. Sheridan Plaza at 4607 N. Sheridan Road, is where many Cubs from the 1940s lived.
In a 1995 interview, centerfielder Andy Pafko remembered walking to and from Wrigley with pitching ace Claude Passeau, who also lived in Sheridan Plaza.
I liked saving the streetcar fare because I was sending home money to help dad pay off the mortgage on the farm,
Mr. Pafko told the Chicago Tribune.
Sometimes, fans would keep us company for a block or two.”
The Sheridan Plaza was a luxury hotel when it was built in 1919. Today it houses 140 low-income rental units. On Thursday, it filed for foreclosure.
