You can peek down the river here for a view of the Trump tower

Here is a view looking out



and then past that, around the bend and up to Navy Pier



The lakefront covers more city up until Lakeshore Drive bends around the Hancock Tower and leaves Michigan Avenue and downtown behind.

The city ends and the Gold Coast begins.

Without the highway blocking the city from the beachfront there probably would have been more interaction between the lake and the city.

Li o excelente livro "Porto Maravilha + 6 Casos de Sucesso de Revitalização Portuária" em que são retratados os casos de revitalização em Baltimore (Inner Harbor), Barcelona (Port Vell), Cidade do Cabo (Victória & Alfred Walterfort) Buenos Aires (Puerto Madero), Roterdã (Kop van Zuid) e Hong Kong (West Kowloon Reclamation), além da que está sendo feita no Rio de Janeiro (Porto Maravilha) e a que mais gostei foi justamente a de Baltimore, por considera-la a mais completa, sob diversos aspectos, uma vez que não houve um foco excessivo em nenhum segmento em especial, de forma que o turismo aumentou enormemente, houve atração de novos moradores, empresas, escritórios, cultura, aquário, etc...

My waterfront compilation from the past five years

This view is now gone, since Pier 17 is demolished















A somewhat dramatic event occurring at Saddle River Park in northern New Jersey





This view is now next to impossible to see, since the Revel Casino, from which this was filmed, is now closed
