Station Street was a 2-block long residential diagonal street that was in the path of the Kennedy Expressway between Fullerton and Western Avenues. Does anyone remember it?

Interesting that it was called Station street, as the closest station to it was at Diversey. Perhaps it refers to an even older station.

I know someone who lived on Station Street during the Great Depression. He said he lived in a house near Logan Boulevard that had an English basement. The house backed right onto the mainline of the Chicago & Northwestern railroad. There were no backyards. Across Station Street lived a family named McHugh. Next door was a family named Hanrahan.

Apparently my g-grandparents lived @ 2509 Station St. for a time--it's the address listed on my gr-grandfather's death certificate. I don't know how long they lived there, but he passed in Aug. 1939. Not sure where 2509 was at--my understanding from the Chicago Hist. Soc. is that portion of it ceased to exist with the construction of the Kennedy.

The old Albert Schiewe coal yard was on Station Street.
