    When the sun is rising in the east, this is a great vantage point to snap a photo of the skyline. Just don't make too big of a deal about it - security keeps a close eye on shutterbugs. Read more

    Highly suggest taking the blue line from wicker park bars to home, it runs 24hrs and is safer than a DUI. Get home safe everyone!

    Hilarious; all the people leaving drink tips on here - this is a CTA stop. Blueline Club Car, a martini lounge, resides near its entrance/exit. Geez.

    Westbound be in the first car - there's a small exit all the way at the west end of the platform. If you're walking that way it saves a block.
