Visitors to our home are often advised to arrive by CTA "L" train whenever possible.
For city dwellers, it's often controversial to decide between arriving at the Western station (where one has to cross that busy thoroughfare to get to our house) or wait two more blocks to get off at Rockwell.
For our part, we like Rockwell, as it is less busy, it's easier to get a seat on an inbound train, and it's cuter by far than Western (at least until the reconstruction is completed; all bets are off at that point).
Tonight while seeking out information on what "L" stops Bob Newhart uses for embarkation and disembarkation (we like to believe he gets off at Rockwell, though it makes no sense if he lives on Lake Shore Drive), we found this period photo of the Rockwell stop. Now who can tell us this isn't the CUTEST "L" station ever?
I dare you.
By the way, if you tell us to look at the official Bob Newhart site... the Chicago landmarks element is broken.Posted by esinclai at April 05, 2003 08:52 PM |
