A yard and shops were built adjacent to the station in 1901, these continued in use until the Howard Yard was expanded in 1993. The shop building was badly damaged in a fire on October 26, 1996, and the site was cleared soon after. An Aldi store, a Target store, and residences now...
Best transit system
The worst station on the entire CTA system.
Ugh this station isn't nearly as nice as things back in Michigan/Wisconsin/the burbs. I hope I get that big promotion at work so I can go live somewhere nice! Loljk I love this stop :)
Dunno what all the haters are talking about lived in hood almost six months no problems or report of problems even close to other stead of the city love this area and its transformation
Great location respectful people wishin you a blessed day whether you're able to help them out or not Uptown rocks!
Once you pay your fare, head up the stairs. That's where you can board the trains.
Not too bad, just don't be an idiot and wear headphones at 12 at night because you will get robbed
If you're walking to/from, avoid the North side of Wilson under the tracks. Some strange stuff goes down around this stop, keep your head up.
Like every place in the city this place can be sketchy. I've yet to have any issues though
Not really as sketchy or dangerous as people make it out to be. I live in Uptown. Just be aware of lurkers as you walk through the turnstile, sometimes they'll try to rush in with you for a free ride.
I hear this station is getting an overhaul. I think that will be a nice positive change, but not without short term pain.
I always hold my phone VERY closely... Luckily, I have never had a bad experience, but you never know... Especially in uptown.
It's a hot mess over here... C
Never had any issues. Mind ya biz and carry on. Situational awareness applies everywhere.
Never had any issues. Mind ya biz and carry on.
Avoid the pigeons and the filth. Although the pigeons are cleaner than this worn out, POS station.
Sketchiest station in Uptown. Always go with someone else, especially at night! Gangs typically wait at the exits to harass people.
Run Far Away & never return!
The turnstiles on the south wilson street entrance are often out of order
The midnight tacos make it friendlier!
Closing this station to rehab or rebuild, I say yes!
Always runs express to Granville or Loyola... Always.
They really need to work on this station!!
Cleanest cta stop in the city. Jk it's disgusting.
I'm sick of trains that drop us off at Wilson and run express to Rogers Park. #ctafail
Sketchy station. Use caution at night.
If your north bound train is delayed when it reaches Wilson, it's going to run express to Granville or Loyola.
If your traveling to or from this stop after midnight use extra caution, this part of uptown is dangerous at night, ton of muggings!. I personally take the extra 10min walk and go to Sheridan instead!
This station is always filled with a diverse array of people. I use it almost daily and have never had any trouble. CTA us in the process of doing a 3 million dollar upgrade to restore it's brilliance
If you have the time, walk to the next stop. This stop is disgusting and you will get approached by unfriendly people.
Scary, decrepit place. Leave as quickly as possible.
Funky and urine soaked
Search for old photos of the Wilson CTA station. Was once the crown jewel of the northside.
