Public Urination Hot Spots Puddle Near CTA Train Stops, Bar Districts (MAP)

In the last two years, police wrote 30 tickets raking in $5,760 in fines at 1514 N. Milwaukee.

Anderson said the nearby public peeing probably happens about as frequently as it did in the alley behind City Sole’s last location at the crossroads of North, Milwaukee and Damen, a six-corner intersection some locals call “The Crotch."

Police officers wrote 59 public urination tickets in the alley east of the L tracks at 22 E. Roosevelt Road netting $18,400 in fines.
