Chicago Never, Ever Learns

We now are preparing to say Goodbye to Central Lakeview and several blocks of iconic Clark Street – and Hello to blocks of empty, useless lots with overhead cement – all to ‘fix’ a 40-second delay occurring on only 40% of CTA Red Line trips downtown.

This seems a good time to revisit what happened to a huge area of Chicago – thriving businesses, residents and all – so they could create the charming, ugly, gridlocked Eisenhower Expressway.
