24 July 2012, Day 49

In an attempt to ward off a diabetic coma in the aftermath of having consumed an ill-advised but yummy slice of chess pie, i took a brief stroll through the neighborhood and happened upon this stately pillar and its mate outside of a beautifully rehabbed apartment building on the 6900 block of N. Greenview Ave. I don't know the history of the pillars other than that they were not outside the building prior to the rehab and that they look like they might be a Louis Sullivan design. In truth, i didn't have to walk all that far to find them since they were only about 50 feet from the Common Cup, home of the aforementioned pie, but i did have to ward off a wild pack of lacrosse players who came pouring out of the building as i was about to snap the picture.
