A reader pointed us to an episode of Geoffrey Baer's "Hidden Chicago" on WTTW, which features some of the many beautiful terra cotta buildings around town, including quite a few right here in Uptown.
Of course there's the Uptown Broadway Building, but also some lesser known lights, such as the New Clark Auto Repair & Body Shop (pictured), the Majestic Store building, and the Native American faces who watch over 4629 N Broadway.
A few weeks ago, in our item about the terra cotta Egyptian-themed building that's home to Nick's Uptown, a reader commented about its similarity to the Reebie Movers building in Lakeview. Well, that's addressed in the report as well.
Take a look at it here; it's an entertaining ten minutes. It's also a nice reminder of what a lovely and architecturally significant neighborhood Uptown was built to be, and how much of it still remains.
