Although most tourists to Chicago will never experience this subterranean part of the city, for Chicagoland commuters it is invaluable. That is when all of it is actually open! For several years the section under Wabash was closed while the block was under construction, it finally reopened and now the section under Block 37 between State and Dearborn is closed.

One section of the Pedway runs from the train stations on the corner of Randolph and Michigan near the Cultural Center to City Hall. From the Cultural Center you can get to the Macy's on State, go outside, walk one block and then go back down the stairs in Daley Plaza which takes you to at City Hall which is a building worth taking a look at the interior.

There are connecting passageways that take you even further, go to the north side of City Hall and find the stairs going down and you can cross the street to the State of Illinois Building (Thompson Center).

There is another section that goes south to the Chase Bank Building and another section that goes north from the corner of Randolph & Michigan that I have never explored.

Oddly the City of Chicago doesn't seem to have an online map anywhere but the attached website has one

And there are a couple of articles on the Chicago blog gapersblock
