As Damen Station Closes, Wicker Park Commuters Dash Off to New Routes

"This is going to be a big pain in the a--.  I had no idea," said Joe Sopha, a 25-year-old financial analyst who lives a few blocks from the Wicker Park station at 1558 N. Damen Ave.

After leaving the station, which closed Monday and is fenced off for construction, Sopha walked briskly down Milwaukee Avenue, headed to the Division "L" station at 1200 N. Milwaukee Ave, a 0.7-mile,  approximately 15-minute walk.

"I feel like we are usually more busy around this time but I haven't checked the numbers yet," said Jon Becker, a supervisor at Stan's Donuts at 1560 N. Damen Ave., which is next to the station.

On the opposite side of the station, Rob Santel, a barista at La Colombe, a coffee shop at 1552 N. Damen Ave., said he feels like enough regulars will still come into the shop during the closure.

Late Sunday, on the evening before the closure, David Arizinamini, manager of Blue Line Lounge and Grill at 1548 N. Damen Ave., which is named for the train line that runs next to the restaurant, said he was hoping the renovations would be more substantial.
