Northerly Island Redux

This is a proposed rendering of what Northerly Island could look like if Mayor Daley gets his farewell gift. The urban legend of how Mayor Daley ripped up the airstrip at Meigs field during a midnight raid is about as Chicago as you can get.

This is a photograph taken from Northerly Island about a year ago. If you haven't been all the way out on the island I highly recommend it. It looks like a city of rubble. There is nothing but broken concrete, bent metal beams and grass. It looks exactly like what it is, an old airstrip that has been overtaken by nature.
