Making the rounds

This picture from Chicago is making the rounds on the blogosphere.

We regularly pass by this corner in our neighborhood, which is one that has seen a large amount of teardowns and extensive rebuilding to create large, luxurious single family homes. Someone has taken a single panel of the sidewalk and turned it into a life size Monopoly board square, making a bit of public art and a comment on the always changing economics of neighborhoods at the same time. The panel is directly in front of a recent teardown, now a construction site - and instead of $75.00, the artist has added many "extra" zeros to the end of the figure.
