I was in Chicago in 2009 and it is an impressive city. For me, once of the finest things is the L, because you can move around the city on it (very fast and confy) and watch its incredible arquitecture at the same time

It wasn't the Authority, but the physical Loop "L" which celebrated its anniversary.
Here is a solid blog post with photographs of the event. If you read the comments, you should notice mine; and the image I got from that vantage point.

CHICAGO | Public Transport ‎

Chicago is a city of neighborhoods with obvious barriers in railroads, high-speed roadways, dead-end streets and vacant land, as well as less visible economic, cultural and racial barriers.

The Bronzeville Getdown project crosses these obstacles physically, culturally and economically by creating a building that serves as infrastructure, architecture and opportunity. The proposed facility plugs a gap in the city’s transit network with a new transportation center and offers opportunities to young entrepreneurs as a business and arts incubator.
