    I lived near the Bloomingdale viaduct in the 1950\’s and climbed up to the tracks many times. It was an odd narrow viaduct, with 2 tracks, and apparently only one train in the evening – and I never even saw that train. Its a massive embankment which split the neighborhood in half. I wondered what could be done with it, short of tearing it down. I\’m happy to read some 60 years later that it will be turned into a park. If it can match NYC\’s High Line in beauty and quirkiness, it will be a huge success.

    This will be another great place to visit when I finally get to Chicago. Hope other mayors are looking at these projects for their cities.
