#tbt Englewood branch Green Line August 1993

[VIDEO] At this point the Green Line (Lake-Englewood-Jackson Park) had been created in February 1993 once the Red Line (Howard-Dan Ryan) was created. The original north-south and west-south lines were rerouted according to create the two lines we know today. Thus we see this from 1993 as a Green Line train heads east along 63rd Street.

We see Racine in service before it closed. We also see the closed Harvard stop which would be dismantled later during the two year closure of the green line for rehabilitation.

Also as you see the train approach Halsted you get a different perspective on the intersection of 63rd & Halsted. Buildings that later would be demolished and replaced for Kennedy-King College and then for the shopping center that would later contain Whole Foods Market Englewood.
