Good Morning Montrose, How Are Ya?

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

I ran into the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Montrose brown line stop today. At first I was going to just hop on the train, but I figured I’d linger about and see if anything interesting happened. It didn’t. There were speeches from CTA head Ron Huberman, Alderman Gene Schulter, and Congressman Rahm Emmanuel. They were all quite boring. “Blah blah blah senior citizens blah blah federal funding blah blah blah cooperation blah blah state of the art.”  They were so boring that I didn’t even stay for the cutting of the ribbon.  I’m sure it was boring.

I also got a chance to chat with a couple of the workers who built the station. They seemed really proud of it. And they should be. It’s probably the nicest El station I’ve ever been in.  In?  On?  Whatever.


been to ? :)
