Not exactly the best set-up for a place of business.
This has happened to me, too, and I'm sure a few hundred other posters here at WSI, too. It's truly a pathetic situation and speaks directly to the innumerable flaws in the original design of New Comiskey caused by HOK's failure to anticipate future marketing needs of the ballclub.
I believe nearly every new ballpark of the 90's easily accommodated a street-level shop, restaurant or bar... with one big exception. Thank God the Sox have been working hard to remedy so many of the goof-ups from 20 years ago...
