Although technically in Evanston, the Chicago Main Newsstand is a little shining gem on Chicago Avenue right by the EL tracks. It has a very colorful history, starting in the 30's and was informally known as a storm shelter of sorts, serving as a hangout for cops and late-night characters. It was once famous because of its assortment of out-of-town papers. The sign still boasts of it. I couldn't resist its retro charms and had to make it one of my night paintings.
