A passenger enters the station as it appears quarter after 7 o'clock in the evening.

State/Lake station opened on September 22, 1895, as part on the Lake Street Elevated Railroad's extension into the Chicago Loop that later became the north side of the Union Loop.[2] State/Lake is the last station on this section of the Loop to retain many of its original features.

One of a series of videos "shot on iPhone 6" to feature in a 2015 Apple advertising campaign [3] features the short journey between Randolph/Wabash and State/Lake shot in time lapse.
