Joe Askins of real estate website YoChicago last month began a series of video posts on Red Line stops going north from Sox-35th station. He'll be posting videos from every station through Howard Street over the next couple of months.
So far he's made it to Monroe. Each video tells a little bit about the station and surrounding neighborhood, including the local average condo prices. They are nicely done and a good primer for both newbies and veterans.
