BRIDGEPORT — Staring blankly down the railway while waiting for the Orange Line, Chicago transplant Allison Mitchell was reportedly asked by an older woman wearing dirty New Balance sneakers and a poncho for directions to Chinatown, interrupting Mitchell’s morning commute.
“I’ve honestly never really been over there, I just kind of pointed and told her to go up about 11 blocks,” Mitchell admitted confidently. “She hugged me and gave me $5, so that was nice.”
Mitchell was later seen exiting the train at Adams and Wabash, telling another tourist that the easiest way to get to The Bean would be to “hop back on the Red Line and get off at Lake.”
