Newest hot spot? Median on State Street

The city of Chicago opened a new temporary park called Gateway to the Loop right in the middle of State Street yesterday — on the median between Wacker Drive and Lake Street.  It’s a great place to savor your Starbucks, meet a friend for a brown bag lunch, or just kill time being an urban person.  It’s really quite charming.
