Damen is a station on the Chicago Transit Authority's 'L' system, serving the Blue Line. The station serves the popular and growing Bucktown and Wicker Park neighborhoods. It is the subject of Bert Monroy's famous image Damen. From Damen, trains run at intervals of 2–7 minutes during weekday rush hours, and take 8 minutes to reach the Clark/Lake station in the Loop.
On December 22, 2014, the Damen station reopened after a two-month shutdown for renovations, part of the CTA's $492 million "Your New Blue" project.
