CTA Addison Brown Line station

May 28, 2013: Numbers-wise, this North Center station isn't doing so well compared with its Brown Line counterparts. This year through March, the stop saw its ridership dip by 2 percent versus the same period last year. Its neighbor to the north, the Irving Park station, saw a 4 percent jump while its neighbor to the south, the Paulina station, saw a 4.5 percent increase. The Addison station, though, is all about the numbers. The station has a bronze art installation on its walls that duplicates Cubs legends Ron Santo's handwriting to depict the box score for the May 14, 1969, baseball game between the Cubs and the San Diego Padres, according to the CTA. For those keeping score, the Cubs won 3-2, thanks to Santo and Hall of Famer Ernie Banks.
