Chicago Traffic, Traffic Statistics, and the One Museum Park building

Posted on Monday 23 June 2008

I’ve been using this site I found about about, GCM Travel Stats, for predicting and analyzing Chicago traffic a lot lately. It works pretty well unless you get an unprecedented freak traffic spike like I did today:

It took me almost two hours to get from Midway to Uptown. I think it was the cubs game combined with the taste of chicago.

Oh well. My new hobby is to take pictures of the sky when I’m stuck in traffic. I’ve been watching them build this skyscraper from Columbia, and it’s really coming together. I figured out it’s the One Museum Park building. Click for larger version:

    Every time I go back the city looks different to me. I don’t remember that being the case while we were in college. Perhaps there is some sort of “development fever” happening now. Midwesterners are the people that take sky pictures, since there is less to look at on the ground.

    I just found this by Googling myself over four years later. I wonder when you and I will meet again, Jordan’s Blog Post…
