    Rub the one eyed monster for luck! (It's the only tiled face with one eye found where the northbound and southbound stairways intersect)

    Lot of stuff here. Shopping is catered to the sexually open-minded and gamers.

    Last chance to bail on the northbound red line before Wrigleyville. Puts you close walking distance from pretty much anything you could need besides a convenient grocery store.

    Really cool part of town here. The station has heaters.

    Busy, but they do a good job of keeping things moving

    The bird poop is fantastic. Come on a Friday night at 1 am for the best entertainment in all of lakeview. Fantastic when Cubs games are happening!

    Transfer point for the Red, Purple, & Brown line trains. During weekday rush periods, catch the northbound Purple Line running express to Howard! A time saver.:-)

    Galen Hames · August 20, 2014
  • Louis K.

    If you're tired, there's an escalator! It's a bit hidden, opposite the mural.

    Make sure you're on the right side of the tracks.

    The Belmont Red Line Station. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.

    When trying to buy marijuana, please keep your phone conversations down as to not implicate everyone else in your crime.

    Both platforms have exits down to George street at the far south end, if you either don't want or need to walk along Belmont. Ignore the pointless "Emergency Exit Only" signs on the doors, just push.

    It's best to get off here if you're going to be switching trains. The next stop, Fullerton, is always busier than this one.

    Even for the CTA, the staff here are rude & incompetent.

    Sarah Brandywine · December 12, 2012

    Its a perfect late night stop. Grilled cheese and big shitty

    Andrew Kyker · November 6, 2012

    Don't come here the morning of the Hot Chocolate 5/15k. This place is a zoo!

    Look for the albino pigeon.

    The stairs after a burrito bowl at chipotle feel like death.

    Don't expect help from the cta attends, the more there are, the more they ignore

    This is where your night begins, continues or ends. Party central especially on holidays and weekends!

  • Melissa T.

    Common sense: You never really know when YOUR train will be late... Triple check your times, but still leave yourself a 15 minute window

    Melissa Tennyson · April 29, 2012
  • Aishwarya S.

    Purple line express stops here!

    Aishwarya Sharma · April 27, 2012

    Stare at the train schedule... it will annoy you even more!

  • Joe O.

    Don't stand directly in front of the train doors before entering train & same if you are on the train and not getting off.

    Joe Ogrin · March 23, 2012
  • Alison R.

    Eat at Clarke's diner under the train ... awesome sweet potato fries!

    Alison Romer · March 14, 2012

    If taking the Belmont 77 bus west toward Ashland .... walk to the stairs on the north side of platform; save yourself a game of frogger

    Beware of commuters! They hate anyone not like them!

    You're really close to ABC Bartending School. Don't go there. That place sucks. They teach misinformation.

    If you have to transfer to the Brownline, do it here instead of Fullerton. Less crowded.
