The Destruction Of Jacob Riis Elementary

It's timely that this picture from November 2006 of the abandoned Jacob Riis ES is on the Chicago Magazine website this month, as part of a collection of online pictures about Chicago. Someone named Carey Primeau (Flickr alias: Primeau) took the shot, and said this: "My photographs are an attempt at reversing the unproductive trend of

neglect and demolition. This photo reflects the frustrations I have

about Chicago's public education system."
