The Chicago Sewers: My Secret Base - South Side (Gallery 25)

This page will be updated!

Welcome to my secret base - South side. There are 3 unique sewer locations like this in Chicago. 1 is MySecretBase.html (North side), the other is MySecretBase-SouthSide.html (this page), and another 1 on the far South side, that I have not yet been to, at around 12500 S. Unfortunately, I don't have much plans on exploring that 1 out.

So, ugh, why did it take me 2 years to find this place after finding my secret base of the North side? Ah well.

What I like about this is that it is in the grass and not on the road!

Looks like I will have a lot of room to bring my Christmas lights and make awesome sewer videos!

I couldn't go down today since there were trucks and truck drivers nearby, loading/unloading stuff, so I will have to come back at night!

Here are some nearby manhole covers.

4 of them. There is something scary about these. They have nails in them. But the original 1 didn't. ;O

These other 4 manhole covers, nothing is down there, just a dead end and a pipe that extends further down, probably to bring air down or steam/ventilation out.
