The Magical All-Indoor Chicago Pedway Tour
Your first question might be: what is the Chicago Pedway anyway? My answer: The Pedway is the unsung hero of Chicago! The official answer is that it’s a series of hallways and walkways that keep Chicagoans from having to go outside in extreme weather. BRILLIANCE!
The Pedway leads us under, over and through office buildings, cultural buildings, residential - but we never go outside. We’ll talk architecture and history, but we’ll focus on the Pedway too. We’ll talk about the symbol, the map, future plans and figure out how exactly we’re supposed to use this thing! On Saturday, the Pedway is quiet, downright peaceful even. It’s cool and dark and WEIRD because we’re wandering empty office buildings and high-rise residences.
Saturday Pedway Tour Highlights:
- The “
off the map” pedway connection, this one is a secret only learned by word of mouth.
- The site of a scene from the Batman movie in the coolest part of the pedway.
- A Tiffany mosaic ceiling that might literally knock your socks off. It costs extra for me to go find your socks by the way…
