Chicago’s New “Green Line” Subway Cars

by Matt Forcey

When I first saw this I thought, ok, Mayor Daley has finally gone too far with his love of green space.  But then, the idea started to grow on me.  And just as I was really looking forward to planting my feet on the nearest El platform to see this garden on rails, I discovered that it does not yet exist.  Alas, this is only a concept that has been proposed to the City of Chicago and is still awaiting funding.  Hope is blooming that with Hizzoner’s love of the fauna and flora (see the extensive gardens atop City Hall) these mobile gardens will be sprouting up on tracks all over the city by next spring.

If you’d like to see the moble garden come to fruition, show your support… visit the project’s website and let them know.
