Inside The Forum in Bronzeville thanks to a tour from owner Bernard Loyd. Possibly the oldest ballroom in Chicago. The 1890s auditorium at 43rd and Calumet next to the green line has been abandoned since at least the 1970s. The building also included shops and a large club on the lower level. Efforts are currently underway to revive The Forum.
