Since its opening in 2015, The 606 has knit together neighborhoods that were once divided by the railroad. This tour covers the history of the railroad, offers insights into the four neighborhoods the 606 passes through and explains the process of re-imagining an old railroad viaduct into a modern city park and trail.

Note: This tour takes place on the eastern end of the trail, passing through the Wicker Park and Bucktown neighborhoods. It begins at the intersection of Marshfield and Bloomingdale avenues and ends one mile west, at Western Avenue.
