17 September 2012, Day 104

This time last week, i was complaining about the loathsome Jackson St. tunnel between the Red and Blue Lines.  I confessed that i often pay an extra quarter to take an alternate route and avoid it. Here is that little detour, through the dazzling ghost town of Block 37. It's a strange place, a seemingly cursed chunk of real estate in the heart of the Loop, an architectural beauty with a current vacancy rate of 70%. But it's so light and airy, especially when compared to the grim and claustrophobic tunnel, that i gladly ignore the ghosts and echoes and grab a glimpse of daylight as i make my way from train to train.
