I had asked this over on city-data, but any local Chicago historians, was there ever a 'skid row' in or near downtown Chicago? I've noticed a few of the last-standing residential hotels over on W Jackson & S Halsted, or over on Clark across from the jail. Was the West Loop Chicago's skid row, similar to the Tenderloin in San Francisco, or the Downtown Eastside in Vancouver, or similar areas? I'm assuming urban renewal wiped out most of those residential SRO hotels in the area...
