Next time you’re in Chicago

Somebody who went to school in Chicago told me recently about a game students there play using the CTA map. It’s simple: Which El station would you name your child after? Discuss. (Link to the map is here.)

This game could translate well in London, Paris and probably a few other major cities, but not New York where too many of the stations are named after numbered streets or obvious locations (“Union Square”).
