Ahh...the 55th Street and Lake Park repaving project is nearly complete: the street is shiny and black, waiting for fresh lines and a new median; the construction barricades are down; the Metra underpass has free-flowing lanes again...
But, hey! What happened? Why is this still here?!
I thought we all agreed that it needed to be hauled out for garbage pick-up? And isn't this the perfect opportunity to do it -- when the crews are preparing to build a fresh median anyway?
So I thought I'd call the appropriate alderman to ask for its removal. But observe the crazy maps of the 4th and 5th wards:
But maybe it doesn't matter. Maybe the two aldermen would have a stronger voice than one alone.
"Ms. Preckwinkle and Ms. Hairston, tear down this sculpture."
