The 606

the 606 chicago trail

One of the city’s newest attractions is The 606 trail. I am totally on board with the concept of re-purposing the former train tracks for a trail. You can tell it’s still a work in progress, but a unique way to explore some of the city’s neighborhoods. Here are a few shots I snapped along the trail (which by the way was not at all as congested as I expected – even on the weekend).

Some of my favorite spots on the trail are where the CTA train crosses over.

The west end, while less developed, is cool because it’s very industrial. It’s hard to say what I enjoyed more – peeking into the condos along the east end of the trail or checking out the warehouses along the west end.

There’s also some vibrant street art & graffiti along the way.
