PARK CLOSED, 19 June 2020

While bars and restaurants have been able to open, Chicago’s beloved Lake Shore Trail has been closed until recently. This week it reopened for ‘Moving’ only. Something that feels completely arbitrary as it should have occurred weeks ago, and it lagging behind the reopening of businesses only highlights the absurdity. We are supposed to believe it is safe to sit close to a window and eat curly fries while getting drunk, but it’s not safe to sit by the water’s edge. How does this make sense?
