CTA Red Line ~ 95/Dan Ryan Stop

“Believe it or not, the South Side of Chicago isn’t the heaping pile that the national media has made it out to be, something you know if you’re from here, and one of the many things you don’t if you’re not. Well, it’s about time we got you up to speed, starting with these 23 South Side truisms.

1. We’re pissed that the Red Line only goes to 95th
