924-926 W. Newport Ave., photo by CCL, 2003 This distinctive and highly intact ensemble of buildings in the North Side neighborhood of Lake View exemplifies the high-quality working-class residential architecture constructed in Chicago's neighborhoods during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Stretching between Halsted and Clark Streets, the district is especially noteworthy for its brick and stone-fronted three-flats, a significant residential building type in Chicago's neighborhoods.
