Best Stoplight for a Catnap 

Hayes Drive at Lake Shore Drive

Leaving 63rd Street Beach can take awhile: during the afternoon rush, the westbound light at Hayes and LSD can be the longest red of any stoplight in the city. Drivers coming from the parking lot for the beach and beach house can turn right on red onto northbound LSD, but those who want to go west on Hayes or turn left onto southbound LSD may have as long as two minutes—just enough time to catch a few winks. The signal is "vehicle-actuated," meaning the length of time it's red depends on the flow of traffic; 122 seconds is the max.
