Sweater #237


Sweater #237 was placed at a parking pay station at Montrose Harbor Recreation Drive in Chicago on a very steamy summer morning. The pathway was full of runners, walkers and cyclists. It was amazing to see so many people out and about being active despite the high humidity and increasing temperature. I happened to be there to meet with a former Roosevelt University student and run with her for a few miles up the pathway. After an invigorating run, and realizing that there were to be many more people visiting this location after my departure, it seemed like an ideal public location for a sweater. While I am not sure how long this sweater remained at this location due to the wind, it made a great image emphasizing the monetary impact that we can make, especially when we consider other expenditures routinely made throughout a day.
