Got an idea for "activating" Union Station? How about a baby carriage careening down the grand staircase as a shoot-out erupts?

Brian De Palma's iconic scene from The Untouchables probably isn't what the Metropolitan Planning Council has in mind for its Activate Union Station contest, which is soliciting ideas that'll draw people to the building for some reason other than catching a train. MPC's offering $5,000 each for implementation of two winning concepts during a single week this summer.

Anyone over 18 can enter; deadline is July 24. Info here.

Video below the jump.
