The Chicago ‘L’ tracks are one of the most iconic things about this city. To think at one point in the 1960’s the city had considered dismantling the old elevated tracks in favor of a new subway system. They decided to keep the elevated tracks and utilized the subway elsewhere. The Brown (pictured above near the Fullerton station), Red, Green, Pink, and Purple lines all run elevated except the portions of the Red that run downtown in the subway. Riding the ‘L’ is one of the best ways to view Chicago.
