DescriptionView looking southeast along the Chicago River from the West Kinzie Street Bridge. The (now unused) Kinzie Street railroad bridge is in the raised position in the upper left foreground of the photograph. The Fulton House Condominiums (originally North American Cold Storage Company warehouse) are on the far right. The Lake Street Elevated tracks, with a CTA Green Line train running across them, are visible in front of the cluster of Loop high-rises. The Willis Tower (originally Sears Tower) rises above them.
