Let's Play A CTA Counting Game

Well, we considered getting a couple burnt out lights under the L tracks on Broadway fixed a success, but fellow Uptowners, there is still work to be done. In this exact same area on Broadway between Wilson and Leland, there are now 7 lights currently burnt out on the underside of the CTA's L tracks. If you have been in this area at night, you surely know that more light in this seedy area is definitely needed. Give the CTA a call at 888-968-7282 and let them know that 7 burnt out lights in this area is unacceptable once and for all.


  1. Let's not forget the Wilson El stores are in shambles. Mostly empty, dark and filthy, they hardly act as a welcoming safe gateway to Uptown. We're talking major rehab that the CTA has been promising more than 20 years.

    Not one single penny of TIF money was allocated to a complete rehab of the Wilson El Station that would have benefited everyone.

  2. The Wilson El stop will always remain the disgusting, broken disaster it is......unless Daley wants an Olympic Fencing Stadium up here, or something.

    It's all about tourists.....look how nice the Addison stop is....or the future Grand Ave stop.
