Photo Gallery: Lathrop's surviving residents

Lathrop Homes, a public housing complex along the Chicago River in the Lakeview neighborhood, has lost hundreds of residents over the 12 years that the city's Plan for Transformation has been going on.

Now, with only 170 families left, the section that sits along Clybourn Avenue has been closed entirely and residents have been relocated to the portion that lies along Diversey Avenue. These photos are of Lathrop's survivors--a few of the families who remain living there, waiting for the transformation to come to their homes.
