Cermak-Wentworth Pavilion, 1990s


Built with funds from the Taiwan government and local sources, this small open pavilion regularly appears in television commercials and in newscasts of the annual Chicago Marathon, which passes right in front.  The land, at the northeast corner of Cermak and Wentworth Avenues, was donated by the Chinatown Parking Corporation.
