Best Answer

In 1895, a house there was bought by Eugene Field, dubbed "the children's poet" by someone (mebbe his own publisher) or some group. Field died only 5 months after buying the house. In 1926, a large apartment building was constructed on the site, and given the street numbers of 4240-48. Today it is 4240-42. The April 20, 1926, building permit (#4948) shows that the original owners of the apartment building were "Delott & Greenberg" and the architect was "L. Guiser."

I was told by my realtor that it was a swanky hotel in the 1920s.

I heard that it was actually a brothel. Al Capone used to frequent it.
