Vote recommends Michael Reese Hospital as historic place

The state has voted to recommend that the former Michael Reese Hospital buildings be named to the National Register of Historic Places. However, that will not legally force Mayor Daley to back off from tearing down the buildings.

At least four of the eight buildings, by architect Walter Gropius, at Reese have been torn down to make way for a residential complex.
