Lower Wacker Drive - Downtown Underground

As a teenager, I used to cruise around this street in the early morning, soaking up the atmosphere and listening to Sonic Youth.  It's old, dark, dangerous, decrepit and very beautiful.  Chicago's unofficial illegal street racing/drifting venue of choice, and setting for much of the amazing chase scene in The Dark Knight.

I wanted to post a related video, but despite the large selection of them on YouTube, they all suck.  I'll have to remedy this next time I go home to visit the fam - it'll be a great excuse to buy a GoPro and rent something interesting with loud pipes.
