Printers Row, Chicago

2.6
Printer's Row, also known as Printing House Row, is a neighborhood located south of the Chicago downtown area known as the Loop. The heart of Printer's Row is generally defined by Ida B. Wells Drive on the north, Polk Street on the south, Plymouth Court on the east, and the Chicago River on the west. This neighborhood overlaps significantly with the officially designated landmark Printing House Row District. The neighborhood includes Dearborn Station, which is also on the National Register of Historic Places.


Many of the buildings in this area were used by printing and publishing businesses. Today, the buildings have mainly been converted into residential lofts with the exception of one commercial printer, Palmer Printing, Inc., near the corner of Clark and Polk streets.
