Baron Haussmann's Avenue de la Grande Armée?

The Bourgeoisification of Paris culminated in Baron Haussmann's renovation of the city, building a signature three story, such as the one shown here.

Except the one shown here is at the convent at Our Lady of Peace, on Chicago's South Shore, which is much more beautiful than Paris, because of the unobstructed views of Lake Michigan (ignoring the bus stop in front of Our Lady, please)

Joseph McCarthy's Our Lady of Peace, "The Blue Church", championed by none other than Loyola University's renowned Professor Frank Covey Jr., is a sublime testimonial to the quest for Peace following WWI.
