Lots of cities have specialized seasons. Seattle has cruise ship season. Houston has rodeo season. Chicago has bridge lift season.
Bridge lift seasons starts today (April 7, 2012), much to the delight of tourists and frustration of cabbies. It makes sense for us to publish a photograph of one of Chicago’s movable bridges moving. But that’s just what you’d expect! So instead, we’re posing this photo of a partially frozen DuSable Harbor (111 North Lake Shore Drive), the place where many of the boats making their way down the Chicago River will end up for the season.
