I’ve always been interested in the way the townhouses were placed in relation to the angle of Rivard.  This site plan shows what I mean - the townhouses closest to Lafayette (far right) have a larger backyard area while those near Nicolette and Lafayette Plaisance St. have almost no outdoor space to serve as a true backyard.

Press photo used in the Chicago newspapers in June 1959 to promote Mies van der Rohe and Lafayette Park. Taken along Rivard at the opening to Nicolet Place. Steps were leading up to the sales office and one can see the original plantings of Junipers and a Honey Locus trees.
