I used to come down here for piano lessons when I was a grade school kid. I have been coming back ever since and this building has only grown in my esteem.
It is a grand old building with a live elevator operator running the funky little elevator. There are music studios and dance studios and art studios throughout the building. It is fun to get off on any floor and you will always here a piano or violin being played. The whole building is dedicated to working artists.
There are beautiful murals in unexpected places, several wonderful theater spaces, and discoveries around every corner.
Places like this are what make big cities special, and this is a special one-of-a-kind place in Chicago.
