I just had to post this after getting pounded by a late winter storm for the last two days, burying us in 10" of fresh-fallen snow. Now the emerging daffodil and tulip foliage is buried.
Located at 1600 N. Lake Shore Drive, North Avenue Beach is one of Chicago's most popular beaches. In the center of this photo is the beach house. This sleek, ocean liner-inspired building, decked out in a crisp blue and white, boasts one of the best views in the city. Permanently docked along the beach, the building contains 22,000 square feet. The beach house has upper decks and portholes for looking at the magnificent horizon or the multitudes of bikers, runners, walkers and rollerbladers streaming down the lakefront trail.
This view is seen from the John Hancock Observatory.
