Chicago Sun-Times

Ride Trivia Answer

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

This week's question asked about a street that was once the site of a Chicago-style Boston Tea Party. Local farmers didn't like the tolls being collected on this plank road, so they dressed as Indians, chopped down the toll gates and burned them. What's the name of this former toll road. Please include your full name and a way to reach you with your answer, so if you win I can get you your prize.

We got a lot of good guesses of diagonal streets -- Ogden, Archer, Milwaukee, Lincoln. But the answer is Elston Avenue. Paul Lockwood, of Woodstock, was the first with the right answer -- which is a twofer for Paul -- he got the answer last month, too.
