Heart Bombing at Altgeld Gardens
February 12, 2022
10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Landmarks Illinois’ Skyline Council will host its annual heart bombing event this year at Altgeld Gardens in partnership with People for Community Recovery. Heart Bombing is a public display of love for a historic site or local landmark and helps bring public awareness to a historic or culturally significant site. More details coming soon.
Landmarks Illinois included three structures at Altgeld Gardens on its 2021 Most Endangered Historic Places in Illinois. The Chicago Housing Authority-owned complex on the city’s Far South Side is the home to the environmental justice movement and where Hazel Johnson started People for Community Recovery (PCR) in 1979 to bring attention to the mental and physical toll of the nearby Lake Calumet and Little Calumet River industrial area was having on Altgeld residents.
