The Polish Triangle sees a lot of traffic on a daily basis. Counts are from the Metropolitan Planning Council's 2010 "Placemaking at the Polish Triangle" report. CLICK FOR FULL-SIZE IMAGE.
The Polish Triangle has 10,000 square feet of space, but is rarely used by the public, especially outside the summer months. Its only "art" installment is the fountain at its center, which was installed in 1998 in Nelson Algren's honor.
Three bus routes stop at the Triangle. Those waiting for the 70 Division bus gather under the shelter, away from the wind and the pigeons.
The CTA Division station, frequently cited as one of the worst in the system, is currently undergoing a station renewal: cleaning, painting and repairs.
