Churches of Chicago's Ukrainian Village Neighborhood

This week I'm staying in Chicago's Ukrainian Village neighborhood on my month-long research sojourn in the Windy City. I had a chance to take a walk around this morning and take some photos of the great church architecture and iconography. I'm nuts for Eastern Christian/Orthodox religious iconography in situ on church exteriors.
St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic

Sts. Volodymyr and Olha Ukrainian Church (wins for best name)

"Ukrainian Orthodox Church" is all I could make out on this one.

Detail of above.
