Erika June Smith,

The Lincoln Park home featured in the opening credits of the 1990’s sitcom “Family Matters” has been approved for demolition.

Screen Shot 2017 09 22 at 11.02.13 AMLocated at 1516 W. Wrightwood, the house is where the fictional Winslow family lived and the iconic character “Steve Urkel” frequently visited. You’ll remember Urkel’s nasally voice, clumsy nature and classic catchphrase, “Did I do that?”

According to DNA Info, the City of Chicago approved a demolition permit for the home Tuesday. The permit allows the current homeowners to “wreck and remove” the two-story frame multi-unit residence. They have plans to build a three-unit residence on the lot.
