Concrete blocks along Roosevelt near IC tracks
Date: October 26, 2013 02:40AM
The other day I was walking east on Roosevelt towards the museum campus and noticed these two large concrete blocks. They are right across from that big highrise apartment (Central Station I guess that is called). They are located just past that rusty leg scuplture thing and next to the sign about the history of Blues in Chicago, the Mississippi Blues Trail. The blocks have decorative designs on them and look like they came from some old building somewhere. Anyone know first of all what I'm talking about and second where they came from? I have a picture of one of them, but it's not on Flickr or I'd insert it here.
Central Station - the actual train station - was located near here and my idea is that possibly they are some remnants of that? There was no sign, no kind of explanation, nothing. Although they may have been there before, I honestly don't remember seeing them previously.
