The Kedzie Corridor on Chicago’s West Side is bookended by the Kedzie-Homan Blue Line station on the south and, about a mile away, the Kedzie Avenue Green Line station at Lake Street. City services have a notable influence on the corridor, including Westinghouse and Marshall public high schools, a large CTA bus barn and the Area 4 Chicago Police Department station. At the Kedzie-Homan station, commuters walk down to the platform that sits along the center of the Eisenhower Expressway, while the Kedzie Avenue station casts a shadow – familiar to many elevated train historians – over Lake Street. Though the corridor has vacant lots and only a few retailers, such as cell phone and beauty supply stores, there’s heart and hope there that’s found in the sturdy single family homes, Nichols Tower at Homan Square and the future home of The Hatchery Chicago, family centers and more.
