ODE TO THE G TRAIN

Your metal doors do not like diamonds glow,

And few admire your bright green neon face

You travel not where I most yearn to go,

And at a slow and steady snail-like pace.

Our schedules seem forever out of sync,

When I arrive of course you will have gone,

I patiently await you on the brink,

And wonder if your signal’s even on.

And you’ve been known to up and skip a station

So where you’ll go is anybody’s guess,

You travel on a route of your creation,

As if it satisfies you to digress.

And though I speak not praise, I must confide,

From Kings to Queens, you’re all I’ll ever ride.

And few admire your bright green neon face

And at a slow and steady snail-like pace.

I patiently await you on the brink,
And wonder if your signal’s even on.
And you’ve been known to up and skip a station
So where you’ll go is anybody’s guess,
You travel on a route of your creation,
As if it satisfies you to digress.
And though I speak not praise, I must confide,
From Kings to Queens, you’re all I’ll ever ride.

THERE are precious few real estate secrets in the United States. Web sites have turned nearly every neighborhood into a big open-house, with slide shows, video tours and price histories, while celebrities, from A-listers to D-listers, regularly open their doors to TV cameras and magazine photographers.

But here in Mexico, only vacation properties receive such treatment. The homes where well-heeled Mexicans actually live are usually surrounded by gates or walls that guard residents’ privacy and protect against intruders. And none are more hidden than the homes owned by the country’s drug lords.

The hill in question — in Lincoln Park in Chicago, overlooking Lake Michigan — is not very big, and didn’t occur naturally. It was born in the 1940s, when a pile of dirt was moved to make room for a tunnel.

When Mr. Octavious first saw the hill, not too far from where he lives in the city, he felt an immediate connection. “When I was little in class and I drew a hill,” he said, “I would draw that shape. That’s the hill in my head.”
