Dearborn Street: Mandatory Breakdance Zone

What’s this wackiness we found outside of Marina City ?  Looks like some kind of CDOT-enforced mandatory breakdance zone.  This isn’t a case of having a screw loose this sign is intentionally in this position as evidenced by the bolts holding it in place.

So next time you’re crossing the Dearborn Street Bridge, be sure to borrow a scrap of cardboard from the nearest vagrant and get your backspin on.  It’s the law.
