Underground Pedway

How safe is the underground pedway near the museums? I know there's an entrance near 1100 S. Columbus Drive near the Aquarium. Input greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  • Sheila A. Donovan Have been an owner at the Stratford since 2001.

    I've used the underpass to the museum campus countless times without a problem. In fact, I've never heard of anyone having a problem there, though like anywhere there might have been a few incidents. I consider it to be quite safe.

  • Thanks so much, everyone! I thought it was going to be completely underground, but it ended up being an open underpass as folks have mentioned. I'm curious to try the actual underground Pedway. I guess I should explore one of these days!

    Was going to get a slice of pizza .As I was walking past Steve's Bite, the food smelled great. They menu looked delicious, I tried the Gyro bowl & Chicken Bowl. I could not resist the taffy apple grapes. I was offered a sample of the chili, it was awesome. a great balance of spices. It was quite delicious, am i am super picky.
    I enjoyed both entrees, the gyro & chicken was nicely seasoned , on a bed of rice & mixed salad , lightly drizzled vinagarette.
    Overall Steve"s Bite is a wonderful change from the same old fast food cycle. You have got to try a meal, you will not be disappointed.

Good neighbor reminder: Snow Removal

    Good neighbor reminder: Snow Removal - Greater South Loop Association
    Chicagoans are very fortunate to experience a winter that has it all - cold temps, biting wind chills, freezing rain, and of course, snow. And speaking of snow, now is a good time to remind everyone to clear their sidewalks after it snows.

  • Yeah, why would want to place someone who indicates "Either Party"... you might end up with an independent judge rather than a right-wing partisan hack who wants to intimidate voters...
