AVENUE MOTEL, Chicago IL

 

 

 

It floats above the lobby on stilts. It has a car radiator three stories tall. It was blue and red. Better: “Self-dialing phones.” Just look at them, they do the rest. Best: “Geisha Room for Cocktails.” Because nothing says “the City of Stockyards and Modern Architecture” like Geishas.

It was located at 1154 S. Michigan. And apparently nothing else existed in the neighborhood.
