Slice of Life: Our Favorite Alley

Historic cobblestones?  Check!
Overflowing vegetation?  Check!
Dark tunnel?  Check!
Trains rumbling above?  Bonus check!

This little stretch of cobbles linking West Grand Avenue with West Hubbard Street is our new favorite Chicago alley.  Of course, visiting with the noonday sun at our backs is easy.  Coming back after dark is where the challenge lies.
