Hi, Lynn!

Could you do a piece on the George Harvey Residence, by Adler & Sullivan that is under threat of demolition? The building is located at 600 W. Stratford Place in Chicago.

There's a piece of the cover of the "Inside" and page 3 of the Skyline.

Call me if you require further information.
