Union Station

Union Station-Chicago, IL, originally uploaded by William 74.
The grand entrance of Chicago Union Station, the last of the inter-city stations in the city. Opened in 1925, Union Station served the Milwaukee Road, the CB&Q, Michigan Central, and the Chicago and Alton. It was by far the busiest of Chicago's stations, and remains so today, as it handles both commuter traffic as well as Amtrak intercity trains.

Union Station is also a well known landmark in the city, and it's grand entrance staircase is a popular setting for television and movies set in the city.
