Placed on Wabash just south of Congress, this location is adjacent to Columbia College and is an interesting cross section of the city. As a kid, this area was very smarmy. Driving by in a car, the bright neon flashing lights and street corner folks often reminded me of television portrayals of police shows. Close to the bus station and quite a few bars, this section of the loop was the prime location for many street economies. This area is still under transformation as is displayed in the picture.
