Today's commute

Had to get down to Hyde Park this morning. I got off at Randolph and Wabash to wait for the Green Line. It was a crystal clear morning and I discovered that this station not only provided the best view of the new Trump Tower but also one of the best of the entire Wabash Avenue streetscape.

Interesting ride down to Garfield Boulevard one that I don't take often. Reverse commute, the train was practically empty. Still some of the most consistently beautiful housing stock in the city, what's left of it anyway, is to be found in the Near South Side.

There is new development that can be seen from the L including one set of row houses that are inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's in The Gap, the neighborhood just east of IIT.
