I really appreciate that you’ve finally shown some progress in revamping the El platforms that I use to get to work and back. They’re pretty and now tourists can buy a pass with a credit card - woo hoo! But let’s discuss the marble-esque (because I KNOW Daley didn’t shell out for the real shit) material used to cover the ground that we, you know, walk on.
Marble-esque material is by definition smooth. It is also very slippery when wet. These two things are a nasty combination in Chicago, the city of deadly precipitation. Let’s think ahead next time, shall we? I don’t know, go with something that has a little better use of friction, perhaps? Leave the marble-esque material to the countertops and the soup kitchen we’ll all be eating at soon.
And yes, this does mean that I just ate it hard while wearing a pencil skirt in front of the Fullerton stop during rush hour while trying to walk to my class with an umbrella in one hand and a steaming hot “Must. Stay. Awake.” earl grey in the other.
