This past Saturday I took a night cruise on the Chicago river and lake Michigan. The tour was given by Richard T. Crowe the famous Chicago Ghost hunter. The two hour tour took us down the south branch of the Chicago river and out into the Lake. He talked about such things as the design of the Civic Opera house, the Eastland disaster , and many haunted ships and boats. One of my favorite stories that he told was that of the building at 680 N. Lake Shore Drive. This building was formally known as 666 Lake Shore drive.
It was a great evening and I recommend taking a night cruise like this. If I had a better camera I could get some better night time pictures of the city. The picture shown here is the Wrigley Building taken from the Wacker Dr. side of the Chicago River. While this building wasn’t on this tour you can learn more about it on the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s river boat tour.
