LaSalle Street was coined 'The Canyon' due to the tall, steep buildings that lie on both ends of the relatively narrow street. The buildings along the canyon have their faces inward to emphasize the feeling of a canyon. The canyon is in the form of a box canyon and uses the Chicago Board of Trade Building to form an abrupt end. The view from the Chicago Board of Trade Building emphasizes its likeness to a canyon. It is generally not permitted to put signs, banners or other infrastructure that hangs into the canyon.
