For the past three days or so the gate to this yard adjacent to the Rogers Avenue "L" viaduct was open. Normally its chained and padlocked. The alderman's office was called yesterday regarding the situation and now the gate is locked shut. Looking at the snow no one was foolish enough to walk up to the "L" tracks.
This place has been a dumping ground for litter of all kinds for years. Louis Dubkin park to the south has received a lot of attention and improvements in the past few years (gardens and fencing). Maybe this "L" embankment will someday become a beautiful place too.
