Ask Geoffrey: Chicago's Old Passenger Rail Stations
"Chicago's old passenger railroad stations for decades acted as the city's front door where people from all over the country arrived seeking a better life or just the thrills of the big city. Jeffrey bayer takes us back to the golden age. Rail travel in this week's ask geoffrey. Hey geoffrey good to see you paris all right so we have a question from larry gardner of skokie he says. Could you do a story on the old train stations that once stood in downtown chicago. Well of course we can. There is as you mentioned. The the late nineteenth century the early twentieth century this was the golden age of rail travel when people traversed the country on trains. And of course right at the center there at the hub of it all was chicago. It's hard to believe. But as recently as the nineteen sixties there were six passenger train stations in downtown chicago today. All passenger trains that come into the city from beyond the suburbs. Go through the last one standing union station which is now owned by amtrak. It's designed including this now. Demolished concourse was right along the river there and the colonnaded main building which is still standing right behind it. In this picture of those things recall the grandeur of rail terminals in those glory days of designed to wow the traveler of the way many airports do today met with. Certainly the goal of another neoclassical designed terminal. Check this one out owned by the chicago and north western railway you know classical buzzards and it stood at what is today. Ogilvie transportation center which is operated by metra. That station included ornate concourses. Waiting rooms even dedicated spaces for barbers and hairdressers. People traveling across the country The chicago north western railway traced its roots to chicago's very first railroad. The galena chicago union established back in eighteen forty eight. By chicago's first mayor actually will be ogden. Certainly the golden age of travel there and then another key player. Of course you hear references pop culture all the time the illinois central oh absolutely That country that company billed itself as the main line of mid america. It was a dominant player. Both in passenger and freight rail their main passenger terminal was called central station once stood just just south of grand part right on the lakefront there. The railroad built this mammoth terminal in one thousand nine hundred three in part to accommodate the influx of visitors. That were expected for the world's fair that year you'll notice almost all of these terminals have clocks or clock towers so people hurrying to catch trains didn't have to fumble around for their pocket watches that of course they had watches it. All central station was also an important point of entry for many african americans who came to chicago from the south during the great migration with like so many of its contemporaries central station met the wrecking ball. In this case in the mid one thousand nine hundred seventy s amtrak diverted there trains to union station but there is still an active platform. Eleven street serving the metra electric line and i gather it's the inspiration for that residential development around their central station. Which i believe. Richard m daley lived there for a while and not to be confused with grand central station. Of course right. That's right and yes. We had our own grand central station. here in chicago. Not new york's wasn't the only one ours was at harrison and wells on the western edge of the loop. Read along the river for about eighty years. It was just north of if you know we're river city's development is today Traffic declined grand central after world war. Two this photo with the board of trade there in the background was taken in nineteen sixty seven at the end of the stations life. It was torn down in nineteen seventy one and this is one of several places in the city. were abandoned. Railroad land is being redeveloped during construction of the new development on this old site buried. Stones from grand central station were actually unearthed and they've been re purposed for a river walk. One chicago train station of actually is still standing So in addition to union station is dearborn station. South loop although of course. It's on train station anymore. You can see its clock tower visible all the way from the north side of lube looking south down on dearborn but what happened to the top of that clock tower. Take a look at this early photo. And you'll notice it once had this huge wooden flemish roof on top of it but in one thousand nine hundred twenty two. It caught fire. Look at these incredible photos from the scene as crowds gathered. Luckily firefighters were able to save the building. But but not that tower roof. I the nineteen seventy s. Most of the train. Shed was demolished but the facade and portions of the terminal were preserved as part of a mall. Serving printers row by the building is still called dearborn station. In fact peres as you just pointed out. Many old stations live on in the names of new developments of the one. You mentioned central station. Just south of grand park word. Mayor daley used to live and then a new apartment building at harrison and wells is using the grim central name

"Keys to the game presented by Evanston, Subaru in Skokie. I had a hunch as we bring it out of the hold. Our sideline reporter gets out of the rain for just a moment. I had a hunch that Coach Pat Fitzgerald might use the term ball security in our pregame conversation, and he certainly did. It's that kind of day. Yeah, nice and toasty and warm up here, but down there, where where I was down there with Fitz. It Z cold and it's wet. It's very wet Ball security is gonna be huge. Unique circumstances here today, guys in many ways you have the it's a rivalry game, but there's awful weather. There's covert. That's been going on. Who wants it more? You know, I think if you look at it from Illinois side That there's Would be almost understandable. If you had some players out there just going, You know, what are we doing here? It's been a crazy season. We have a losing record. The weather is awful. But you know the injuries that you guys talked about earlier. That opens the door for some younger guys that probably hadn't played a whole lot. And they're gonna be motivated to come out here and play. So Northwestern. Just you have to stay kind of laser focused on this game, not look ahead to next week, but at the same time You know, there's some things in this game. They're gonna ply the next week. Ted, like you've got to figure out a way to get that running game going now, because if you can't do it today, that really raises some questions about how you're gonna do it next week in Indy. Well, this calls for a running game day all the way and I look it Running back's going to be used today. Drake Anderson, who obviously has been the workhouse workhorse here recently, number one Russia with 252 yards, but we're gonna see a lot of camp order today, so only that it carries for 32 yards, but he had that one fabulous touchdown. 20 yard run, And then also you've got Evan Hall, who also is a redshirt freshman. I'm not much you're about as a A Bowser. He hasn't really played a whole lot in the last couple weeks since that fumble. It was here against Wisconsin. But this is a day where you have to take advantage of those injuries on The ally in my defense, run the football and run it often remembered as Dave just said earlier. 378 yards a year.
Twitter will ban Holocaust denial posts, following Facebook
"If you're American, you probably think of free speech as the default. Just the way things are. And I. Don't know where it enters the stuff. I don't know if it's in the water or if it's in the kindergarten curriculum Evelyn. Is Not American, but it's only something that I have encountered faith in years is just like first amendment fundamentalism she's an Australian who lives in Massachusetts and she's one of most dynamic and nuanced thinkers. Online speech. She lectures at Harvard Law School. You came here to study kind of First Amendment Law to look at this stuff. As an outsider, what was your impression of the US fundamental adherence to free speech? I feel a little bit like gas lit as a foreigner when you come to America. As I did for years ago to Study Comparative Constitutional, Law, and free speech One of the most striking things about American free speech doctrine is this like this example of there were Nazis that wanted to march in skokie. I know jumping straight to Nazis his kind of leaping into the free speech depend. But Evelyn's describing one of the most famous first amendment cases when that really tests American values, the story goes like this. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, a group of neo-nazis wanted to march in the Chicago suburb of skokie Illinois largely because a lot of Holocaust survivors lived there seven thousand concentration camp survivors living in the predominantly Jewish Chicago suburb of skokie not surprisingly, there was a huge legal fight cokie officials a block Nazi demonstrations with court injunctions when the Nazis appealed to the State Supreme Court a judge has refused to hear the case. But what might surprise you if you don't know the story is that the American Civil Liberties Union indeed a lawyer with the ACLU defended the Nazis right to March under the First Amendment saying the right to free expression with integral to who we are as a country. It's just such an iconic story of the literal Nazis were going to be allowed to marching the street and as a foreigner you come here, new learn that and normally deland that it's it's not like these inconvenient embarrassment about Assessment Amendment Law. It's this like really proud one of the truly great victories for the First Amendment was that it will protect the speech that we hate because it is you know Betta to have it out in the urban it's better to meet it with county speech and we just can't trust the government to suppress as an Australian very striking. I don't even have a right to free speech. We don't have a bill of rights and our Constitution it's it's like a completely foreign idea this fight over unfettered free speech and in fact, where it collides with Anti Semitism and Holocaust denial broke into the news cycle again, this week, there's a split screen like the Supreme Court confirmation hearings going on on one side, and then on the other side facebook releases a blog post the company which has always said it values free expression above everything else announced that it would ban any content that denies or distorts the Holocaust. Two days later, twitter did the same thing. It might seem like banning Holocaust denial is a pretty easy call, but it was only a few years ago that facebook said, it wouldn't prohibit Holocaust to nihilism on its platform. which is part of why and says, this is a really big deal I. think this is like a really iconic moment in the history of the company and its thinking and its evolution around its rules. There is no more emblematic rule that facebook had about. To First Amendment Principles. Today on the show. Decision to finally habit Holocaust, Mus Information and what it means for free speech debates, the Internet and the potential for change.

Good Monday dot com today. I, WanNa talk about how seismic shift this is if we think back to just two years ago. Mark Zuckerberg gave a very now well known interview to Cara Swisher. And said, she didn't believe that posts that deny the Holocaust should be taken down. I believe that our platform should take down because I think that there are things different people get wrong. either. I don't think that they're intentionally getting a wrong but I think that they. They might be but go home. It's hard to pune intent. Boy. It is a big journey from. People get things wrong even though I might find it personally offensive. To. My own thinking has evolved. The big thing that they always have hung onto was we don't WanNa be arbiters of truth, and we will not take content down purely on the basis that it's false. We might take it on the down on the basis that its nudity or that it's hate speech or that it has other sort of effects but we weren't take content down just because it's wrong and that's sort of what's reflected in that quote from Makoto Takhar Swisher is you know some people get things wrong sometimes and the the pandemic literally changed that decision overnight in the context of a global public health emergency they abandoned that they said we will take down. False information about the pandemic because it poses a public health risk, and now we're playing ball like now companies are taking content down on the basis that it's false and we're now seeing it in other areas. We saw it in the context of the wildfires in West my country was on file for months. In December and January, and there were lots of false rumors about the cause of the fires and facebook didn't take anything down and then Oregon was on fire A. Couple of months ago, and suddenly they were taking down misinformation about the cause of their as far as think a stock contrast as you can draw. It's still interesting to hear you peg this to the pandemic because I think about all the data points that came before that this is. After the two thousand, sixteen election, it is after the Charlottesville unite the right rally, which took place in two thousand seventeen. Do you think the coronavirus pandemic is it sort of launching us into a new I guess area of thinking about content and speech on its own or or easy it kind of a I guess a catalyst for something that was going to happen anyway. Yeah. You're absolutely right that it's only sort of it's part of the broader trend. It was a particularly visible and sort of obvious example of the trend in the same way that the pandemic has made many sort of fundamental. Assumptions structures in society more visible, and we've sort of seen progressively moving more and more along that line of sort of okay. We copies all speech all the time. Let's balancing trysts and draw the line and I think that the pandemic was just sort of another step along that road. If you think about it that way these announcements from facebook and twitter about banning Holocaust denial or in line with other content moderation decisions we've seen this year like the outright ban on Cunanan content. But in other ways several and says the decision. Holocaust. Denial marks a deeper and more fundamental shift in how speeches police online Holocaust denial is one of these iconic things about the first amendment and I believe that one of the reasons why facebook sort of stuck to that principle for so long of allowing on services was because it's still considered itself a fundamentally American company attached to these first. Amendment ideals is robust marketplace of ideas. Which is bizarre when you think about it these these are clearly global companies now and most of they US bases outside all over America but there was still something that it couldn't let go of and so I think it's really when Audience First Amendment land anymore like vc's we are now in this unknown landscape of trying to work out what norms we can attach ourselves to.

We want you to play this to them. And here's some great insights from a young man has done remarkable remarkable things and we'll go into some Even more remarkable things Nicholas walk into the shot. Thank you for having me Yeah yeah this is really cool. I love to shed some of my wisdom now. Great great to have you so again. Keep a relaxed. It's easy it's all good. Kids have been interviewed. I I'd like to keep this all unscripted as you know there's nothing in front of us I'm just GonNa ask you some questions. Don't be nervous to speak from the heart and remember that it's all about trying to help people Better themselves especially. There's a lot of parents that listen to this and a lot of kids now going through obviously grade twelve and doesn't matter what they've gone through grade twelve it also helps anyone wanNA school So tell me you finished grade. Twelve twenty nineteen. How does it feel first thing that comes to mind? I kind of lost actually like I've done really well and and I can pretty much do what I WANNA do. But I've no idea like what path when I go down in life. I have no idea what I'm passionate about yet. I've just really vague idea. Yeah that I want to go into business but I don't know like whereabouts. It's very yeah and that's okay right and one of the things I tell my kids and my kids are eleven. Nine nine is you know You don't have to have all the answers you don't have to have all the answers and it's so refreshing to hear somebody just finished grade twelve. Say I don't know exactly exactly where I WANNA be. But you have an idea businesses. Obviously something you're passionate about and you interested about Tell me go back to school tummy. What's one of the most challenging things that you remember from school? I guess like the the hottest thing to me was learning how to study like when I went to the grandma I was like a straight say student. I'd no idea like what I I needed to do to get to like is and then I guess like a lot of hard work and a little trawling Aragon neither and that was the hardest thing for me coming from like a state school that was like a big lead and then the that's that's the biggest jump. Yeah now that's great and yet my son's very similar obviously not as old as sure when Ali went from a private school Holy Spirit and went to church in grade one And of course now in year twelve years later view he found exactly really something he went from being top of the class. The bottom of the class and And he had to work very hard and of course you've worked very hard because let's say that Nicolas is achieved amazing amazing Results at grammar in the top ten percent of this country which is obviously very proud for himself Obviously himself must importantly and then overseas family family as well and I think number one from Nicholas's If you do the work you get the results And it doesn't matter what you start it's where you finish. And he came into grandma being says Kennedy Grandma In the top two percent in the country run. That's exactly right like I was in the bottom twenty eight percent of my cohort and I guess like that really acted like as a dry to me. I really wanted to improve so I I studied like four hours a night for like four four years and then I like sort of gradual progression in Mike Reid's feed at how the system worked and then I ended up doing extremely well. And that's a I didn't inspiring so tell me what drove you to study those four hours because there's so many people in this world today that the results won't do the work and one thing I love about you Nicholas. You've done the work and that's inspirational and a great message for people is you. Don't get the results without the what. What drove you? What were you thinking when you said I have to do that with because this is a lot of people out there that are not prepared to study for hours? I guess like demanding that I was driven by was just really wanted their respective my peers. Like I was at the bottom like a felt like I was a nobody like when I was at primary school like I felt like us being noticed like aboriginals good but then I went to grammar and I'll just like the bottom and I guess like it eventually really got to me. I was like I can't do this anymore. I wanted to make something of myself. I'm here so I worked really hard. And then eventually started getting ceramic awards. And then Ozzie proud of myself awesome and and you know and and I think the key message out of that is very simply you had a vision yet vision of what you want it to be and what you want to achieve and you did the work and side enough. You need to do the work. Tell me what's a highlight view in your Schooling ruling is you know twelve years of school. It's now thirteen years. You didn't have to say this now. They do but You know e- what was the highlight fear. The highlight for me was really doing sport. Whoa like I found that? It was a great way to manage stress so I did. I did cross country and swimming. I did about twelve hours of training a week and that really stopped me from burning out and it like kept my mind's clear and stuff and I made a lot of friends through that as well so I found that to be really like good for me mentally. Yeah awesome awesome. Tell me how important friends at school my friend because I talk about it with the kids at the people in that circle that you keep telling me how did they firstly high important where they and how did you go about choosing the right people in your circle They really like the friends that I picked will like extremely smart and they were like a lot smarter than me and I guess that sort of setup that I wanted to be and I constantly try to improve to get to that level and then because of that I worked. I decided to work harder. And I got their advice and seek their advice and I'd say having a good group of friends extremely extremely important if you want to do well and Jim Collins says the famous Jim Collins says you the some of the first people you've got around you. Things are talked about in oversee the flash caused sees you are prodigy the people that you keep your Angie that company because it's all about mindset you have to have this positive mindset constantly to be the best that you can be and remember that whilst you can be in a competitive if situation Like Cherchi like grandma in skokie there in competitive situations all the time and that comes with a lot of stress comes with a lot of issues and the rest of it. The true focus should be on how they think about themselves and how they want to be the best semi. How did you deal with the pressure? of what comes with an elite school Manley just through sport. Lack is related endurance. Sports like swimming and cross country. 'cause like I found on that they really take your mind. The work like physical pain. Like if it about everything. And you'll really focused like breaking your pay bay and instantly takes your minded the stress of like trying to do well. I guess going to competitive school. A lot of people are trying to get up in the ranks and that that sort of like it can get you like mentally and I think doing sport is like the biggest cure for that and not losing it. People just like being humble and then not like like going crazy some great advice as the said Nicholas is a very was young man Nicholas Tummy message that you would give to people at You doing great twelve this year. What would what would be some of the learnings that you would say? Because I said Iowa said that wisdom comes with experience experiencing g can be was your a lot wise and the people going through grade twelve this year. What what messages would you give? The people that are starting told this year I'll say like work is in everything on like in twelve. I like completely shut out a lot of family and friends to do well and I regret doing a lot because like I got really lonely in a bit depressed like three twelve and that sort of sodomy so I guess if there's one thing to take away is definitely where cod but don't like shut other people out. Yeah great message there. Isn't it because you do need people around you and you still need to have. I always talk about Nicholas Professional personal and family and it doesn't matter whether it's Great Levin Grade Twelve whether it's university whether it's business whether it's everything and it's messages I've missed in the past and not learnt from I've let now but didn't didn't listen to in the past. was you still need that balance of personal professional no and family. So I'm going to finish our interview and you've been amazing and short listeners. Love this but I want you to think about one thing you want to achieve. Personally the one thing you want to achieve family and one thing. You don't shave in terms of business in your bitten. This year will obviously be something like university What is one thing that you wanna do and achieve so when we were sitting here in one year time what does twenty twenty look? What was the number one successful thing in terms the family suddenly and in terms of professionally which is work schooling? I think I need to look closer with with my family like I feel quite disconnected from the now just finishing it twelve like. I didn't even know how old my sister was turning. And she's like birthdays tomorrow. Thousands of weird and then so I guess like I would really want to spend more time with them on the stand the more

"I'm always great badger. Hey experiment needs to happen in New Jersey with with the legalization of marijuana and not only the experiment of marijuana charges. Steve, but I feel like everything compounded from that point on. In other words, if there was a domino effect. I think that should be excused as well. What do you mean by domino effect? Well, listen near the candidates has got that Skokie smell, and sometimes that may have been, you know, triggering off some other legal activity, and some of those other things that were found like let's say a firearm, for instance, or cash may have exaggerated the charges. Average citizen you playing like fantasy criminal here. What happened to me? Steve. Now makes sense. Yeah. And you see now now now the truth comes out. So so let's say Dimitris record should be expunged. Well, listen, I founded the church of cannabis sativa with to protect my second amendment interests. Also a card carrying a part of the program. So for me, personally, I'm not that affected at this point and Hardaway my charges were dropped to just a misdemeanor, but not everybody else in New Jersey gets fair shake, and it's about the social equality issue. It's not about the plant the plant's instrumental in getting a conversation on the table. And God bless us. All I just left the township meeting. Everybody's talking about it. Everybody wants to know the details and the facts behind it. And I celebrate you one on one five and everybody getting behind it. And having these adult conversations that makes it a good decision for us because making decision for us. The only problem I've got the only thing I'm saying as far as expunge goes is if it's going to continue to be criminal to sell to kids, and it was than those who sold to kids should not have that those records expunged everything else. I don't care about. But if it was going to be a cry is gonna continue to be a crime. Time then the expunged wouldn't wouldn't apply because you know, it's one thing when it's no longer a crime, but it's gonna continue to be a crime. How can you expunge? Well, my opinion about that real quick. So you gotta go to the next caller next subject is if we are not held responsible for giving somebody a prescription enough following up with it. In other words, if a doctor, and we're using that term gives a child or or somebody ADHD medication which is about them Fatemi and sisters, no responsible follow up on that. If there's no program to doctor is legal, and he's giving you a legal prescription. This is an illegal guy giving you selling you when illegal substance at the time, and we're and subjective right now. So my opinion is the same thing should happen to the doctor giving away those prescriptions for the opioids and the speed as the person who sold marijuana to the teenager again, it's the galaxy and there's fine lines here. But there's responsibility on both sides of the lines theirself self accountability. And there's a social. Of course now. Good stuff.

"You don't have a working, husband and wife. They don't really have time to go outside the city locations, you know, just to get their own ethnic foods, you know. So I am from India. So, you know, we cook we really depend on on cooking our own, you know, ethnic food, Joel. But the problem was bad when I moved to Manhattan, we had to travel hour one way just to get our ethnic foods. And you know, that problem that I was trying to solve that. That's the thing. That's really interesting to me is like that. I know this from just like random times that like my family would want to cook different kinds of food weather's polish food or whatever it was. We would always have to drive to like Skokie or a ways away from where it was it wasn't a place that I could just go to the store and get it. You gotta go to Italian or Greek tower Chinatown to get these things it's not centrally located. So if you look at the sheer demographic makeup of any major city like you're talking about New York, obviously, but cog, or wherever I think that most people who would be your customer don't live right there next to wherever their town is that they'd be able to get all this stuff. So I gotta think you've got a gigantic market. You can serve. Right. Yeah. We think so too. I meant to mention it. We're talking twenty five percent of the US southeastern that. Ethnic associates with an ethnicity and. The go-to. In the US. And last year was about six hundred and forty billion dollars in look at just ten to fifteen percent. Which are that's a hundred billion dollar market. Is that you know that we're looking at. It's like we all want instant gratification for reaches is the capacity the capacity as far as turnaround time on what a customer would expect. And I'm saying this because I know it's the cart we've been experiencing. Now, you try to order your food first thing in the morning, sometimes they don't have the capacity to deliver until the next day. I mean, how is that experience with you guys? I mean, it's it's it's a little playing lane that you kind of have to walk, of course, customization instant gratification. They expect to our deliveries. That's not always possible. But if if if it is to be possible, then it comes with a cost the higher cost their driver, you know, driving, you know, half hour just to get to one customer. So there's cost associated with it. Which is of course, went to come on the customer pocket, or they would be willing to maybe work with the cost the cost, you know, agree to as lately delayed delivery. And it's the customers auction we provide those options, and it's up to the customer to pick. What they like. So I wanna I wanna Ricky, bro. Kind of a good point when he mentioned insecure it so I look at this market in particular think like you have you could look at it competitively, you also look at it as like a huge opportunity in the sense that there are Amazon, obviously is crushing and putting a lot of pressure on the ends of the world. And so there's this like trouble that perhaps you run into on that side. But in all. Reality you're so niche, and it's so unique and the user base is not the same. They don't have the same user behaviors as the general general pop if you want to call it that, and I wonder are you looking at this is something that either becomes you grow this them to like an ethnic Instagram, literally. Or is it something you're looking at like, I can roll this into an acquisition in that like Amazon or any of these other ones could acquire you and in doing so put immense pressure on the inside of the world because of the reality that you represent twenty five percent of their market. That's insane. Like, I gotta think you're looking at that thinking that there's there's a move here. Right mean, there's many many opportunities here. But the way we're looking at it as that because we're niece we've kind of made all of these guys into indirect competition rather than direct competition. And so that gives us a little room a little breathing room. So we can grow to potential. Tires get too much market before they start thinking, I guess and added a complementary piece to any of this offices. It'll be totally NBA WalMart to on vertical. I love this. I really do.
