    United Center, not Union Station in the street parking article

  • Chicagoan

    Regarding Mark Konkol: Did he actually help put DNAinfo on the map in Chicago?

    I felt like a lot of his pieces on there were click bait in nature.

    His documentary about the 16 y.o. boy imprisoned at Rikers is intriguing, though.

    I’m sure he’ll continue to troll the cycling community in one way or another.

  • Chicagoan

    Does the Union Station project include the subway under Canal/Clinton (Which one is it, again?)?

    Creating a new loop for the Blue Line and connections between Ogilvie & Union (So, Amtrak & Metra.), the CTA, and as a result O’Hare sounds fantastic.

    “Did he actually help put DNA on the map in Chicago?” I will refrain from making the obvious off-color joke here.
