According to sources in the ward, the design phase for the rehab of the Wilson El stop is now at 30%, up from 10%. The existing Popeyes restaurant would be moved from its current location and a new entrance to the station would replace it. No word yet on where Popeyes will be relocated. We have heard about this rehab for years now, so we, like many others in Uptown, will believe it when we see it.
For those of you wondering, the above photo shows the Wilson El station before the clock was removed, and the lower photo shows the station in 1959 after it was sadly removed.
