400 W. Kinzie St.

(Area) – River North/West Loop


A favorite photo spot for wedding parties, The Chicago North Western railway’s Kinzie Street railroad bridge  is a single leaf bascule bridge across the north branch of the Chicago River.  At the time of its opening in 1908 it was the world’s longest and heaviest bascule bridge. The CHicgao Sun Times, the last railroad customer to the east of the bridge, moved their printing plant out of downtown Chicago in 2000, and the bridge has been unused since.
