Chicago Rat Hole Landmark Removed by City Department and Mayor’s Office

On the sidewalks of a Chicago road, there was a space that resembled a rat with a tail; even the crimps and minute deviations in the nails were visible.

Residents started referring to this peculiar landmark as a “rat hole” rather than a pothole. People began throwing coins around it, and the small defect turned into an attraction for both locals and tourists in Chicago.

Visitors often threw coins, took pictures, and created a commotion in the area. Some residents complained to the mayor about the disturbance caused by tourists and onlookers.

The removal of the rat hole was a collaborative decision between city departments and the mayor’s office. Eventually, the mayor announced that it would be fixed since it was considered a defect.

Paul Sajovec commented,

“It was just a combination of the fact that the sidewalk was uneven and also that people would show up at various times of the day and night and make a lot of noise and create other issues and problems.”

The rat had touched the hearts of many; it was well-loved, but now it will be fixed and will disappear from the heart of the sidewalk.
