Oh That's What It Is

A few weeks ago, I almost fell over this thing when I was backing up to look at/photograph one of the Cardinal Banners. I didn't know what it was at the time. It says "State Street That Great Street" and looks a little like a hitching post. I know we have mounted police that patrol the Loop, but they usually don't tie up their horses. A few days ago I was in the area and saw one in use: It's a single bike rack.

I was in Macy's on State about a month ago. I was in a quiet dressing room and was treated to Gene Kelly singing a song I've never heard before called Chicago Chicago.

The lyric that stood out...

"On State street, that great street, I just wanna say,
They do things that they don't do on Broadway."

Pretty cool to have a song that mentions the street you live on. :)
