Chicago by Boat: The New River Tour DVD
In this informative DVD, Geoffrey Baer reveals the dramatic changes that have taken place along the banks of the Chicago River since his original television tour in 1995. Covering more than twice the distance of the earlier program, Geoffrey travels from the farthest reaches of the industrial South Branch, through downtown skyscraper canyons, and up the scenic forks on the North Branch to the river's surprising origin.
The historic neighborhoods, amazing architecture, and colorful characters that make up Chicago's rich past are explored as the river winds through the heart of the city and suburbs. Along the way you'll see dramatic new river-edge residential architecture including Trump Tower, and see how the city is opening up the banks of the river with riverwalks, parks and canoe launches for strolling, boating and fishing. Filled with wonderful Chicago stories and breathtaking views, take an incredible journey through Chicago by Boat.
Chicago by Boat: The New River Tour was produced with the assistance of the Chicago Architecture Foundation and the Chicago Historical Society.
