The El

Posted by Craig on 9/10/2008
I took the 10-15 minute ride north to DePaul's main campus (Lincoln Park) this afternoon. Made the trip by subway and returned by "the El," which is the elevated train here in Chicago. (For those familiar with CTA, I took the Red Line there and came back on the Brown Line!)

I had to pick up my Student Pass for Chicago public transportation. This pass is good for unlimited rides on all CTA trains, subways, buses, etc. for the quarter, so it'll definitely come in handy.

Not sure the next time I'll make it up to Lincoln Park. Everything I need is around my own neighborhood here in the South Loop (food, housing, classes, plenty of stores, etc.). So I thought I'd document this excursion by taking a pic of The El. This was taken on Fullerton Ave., right in the heart of Lincoln Park and the DePaul campus. And there's the El, the elevated train in the background.

That's about all for now. Classes start tomorrow!
