    Beautiful view. The hazy skyline, delicate color of the sky, and the deep shifting water give it a real solid, monumental feel.

    I've always wanted to row out to one a crib. Why Chicago doesn't have a reality show called Chicago Crib I'll never understand. But then again, why would we ever do that to such great local landmarks. Trump Tower is enough.

    Great shot! Always to see up close.
    Good to see a hidden part of Chicago.

    Yes, there were once tenders here, now I hear some little silver spooner tool is using it as a private restaurant.

    Was on that water crib back in 1965-a uncle had a friend that work on it-the fishing was great!! Fantasic picture!
