Within Defined Limits

 

Chicago is a big city and most people imagine it is just full of goings on at all hours.  Sure every city has an empty lot or abandoned warehouses and generally neglected industrial areas but I suspect we managed to find the most desolate intersection within Chicago city limits on a recent trip.

I’m not kidding.

Seriously, this is well within city limits.

We walked around here for a good half hour or so, just left the car sitting in the middle of the street.  No one noticed.  The whole time you couldn’t even hear any traffic, or trains, or anything but the faint hum of the power station when you were near it.

Heck, we even saw deer.

    • I kind of want to build a little house out there so I can have a Chicago address without the Chicago neighbors.

      • I guess that depends on where you’ve lived… but I understand the sentiment.
