Union Station is the third busiest train terminal in the United States, with about one hundred and twenty thousand passengers each week day. There is an extensive amount of land above the underground track and platform area of Union Station on which several buildings have been built over the years which have included the Chicago News Building and the Chicago Main Post Office.
