Chicago Streetcars

If you've ever been in Chicago neighborhoods, you've seen train tracks in the middle of streets that seem to go nowhere. Those are the old abandoned street car tracks that were used for the last time yesterday in 1958.

DNA Info has a great piece about that.

This is obviously before my time, but I do wonder if the choice to move to buses was the correct choice in the long run.
