[ The 606 : A paradigmatic Park ]
This isn’t the New York’s High Line but it’s also a long [4.3 km] elevated linear park, greenway and rail trail. What was the abandoned Bloomingdale line is now #The606 : a multi use recreational trail, park and alternative corridor.
As train traffic slowed on the Bloomingdale Line in the 1990s, attention turned to how the train line might be used to increase much-needed green space. The City of #Chicago brought residents together to discuss an area of particular concern – #LoganSquare, a neighborhood that, at the time, had the least amount of #openspace per capita of any in Chicago.
