(WASHINGTON TIMES) — A new Cold War is brewing here in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood and it has nothing to do with the frigid temperature.

The apartment building at 832 E. 57th Street was once the Chicago home of a boy who would become a President.

No, it’s not Barack Obama of Hawaii. It was at the apartment’s first floor window that a young Ronald Reagan looked out upon the world.

But some powerful Chicagoans are planning to demolish Reagan’s historic home. Is it politically motivated? Is Mayor Rahm Emanuel behind the move?

WND note: Want to know why President Reagan was so great? You’ll want to read about his divine connection in “Hand of Providence: The Strong and Quiet Faith of Ronald Reagan,” available in WND’s Superstore.
