The Not-So-Old Greyhound Station

Blogdowntown has a great post about the Merchandise Mart, which was built as a Greyhound Bus Depot in 1967. I won't steal its thunder or pictures; go there for the story.

But I do remember riding into that bus station at 7th and Los Angeles Streets around 1973 or so. We were picked up at dawn by a friend, and the eerie silence and empty streets, with only a few trench-coated bums lurching around, is something I've never forgotten.
