Join us for a journey along our most famous front yard. Chicago's lakefront is unique in the world. It's a seventeen-mile-long people's paradise that belongs to all of us.
WTTW's popular on-air host, producer and Chicago Architecture Foundation docent Geoffrey Baer explores Chicago's Lakefront. Chicago's Lakefront originally premiered just a month before the start of the 100th anniversary year of Daniel Burnham's great Plan of Chicago, which transformed the lakefront into an unbroken ribbon of public parks.
