  1. When I was 15 (1975), I was crossing the street from the El station, between the 2nd and 3 viaducts you see, behind the car pictured here in the first photo, going southbound. I was rendered unconscious, and woke up in Edgewater hospital, where I stayed one week for my injuries. 7 years later, underneath those same tracks, going northbound, I got into an auto accident. Also, they filled in the spaces between the viaducts with concrete, so nobody else could share my fate.
