For the last four years, Christ Bobis stayed in the basement of an otherwise unoccupied building in Little Village with no running water or heat except from a space heater.
The aldermen backed down, which is why I am pleased to report that Damianides was able to rent a room at the Ewing for Bobis for the next couple of weeks to save him from this cold.
Christ Bobis, 77, had no place to turn when the temperatures plunged and the electricity went out in the unheated basement where he was staying. His friend rented him a room at the Ewing Annex, one of the city’s last cubicle hotels. “I would be gone if this wasn’t here,” Bobis said./Mark Brown/Sun-Times
