    The plaza outside the Apple Store is just so nice and relaxing.

    Good for.... Exercise? Frankly, it's embarrassing that this major station is not accessible. No elevators and the escalators only go up. Get it together, Chicago.

    Not a good stop to schlep a bike or large luggage up the stairs because escalator is too narrow. Small Starbucks is inside here on the Clybourn side

    Narrow escalator. Don't be lazy, take the stairs. You know you should.

    The water fountain, and natural vegetation, provide a peaceful balance to the hustle of passing cars and pedestrians.

    If you're young please treat the escalator as a moving walkway. If you're fat, I'll we'll cut ya some slack.

    I remember this lady 5 years ago get ticked when the train went elevated who yelled at the conductor "why didn't you stop at north and clybourn? Why can't you go back??" You probably had to be there

    People! Stop texting while walking up and down the stairs, or anywhere WHILE walking! Get out of the friggin way! Seriously.

    If you're fat take the stairs, otherwise you'll prolly get stuck on the escalator.

    I don't care WHAT they say in the RedEye, this station is STILL a hell hole.
