metroblog is a place for urban scheming and transit plan dreaming, both historically and futuristically, and both realistically and idealistically. Thinking practically should not preclude thinking big.

Thanks for being here. I'm a graduate student at the University of Illinois-Chicago's Master in Urban Planning & Policy program, concentrating in Urban Transportation and Economic Development.

A huge credit to Graham Garfield and chicago-l.org, the most comprehensive web resource for the history of Chicago's rail system and a place from which I have an incalculable amount of historical knowledge.
