Geoffrey Baer reveals the dramatic changes that have taken place along the banks of the Chicago River since his original television tour in 1995. Covering more than twice the distance of the earlier program, Baer travels from the farthest reaches of the industrial South Branch, through downtown skyscraper canyons, and up the scenic forks of the North Branch to the river's surprising origin. The historic neighborhoods, amazing architecture, and colorful characters that make up Chicago's rich past are explored as the river winds through the heart of the city and suburbs. Along the way you will see dramatic new river-edge residential architecture including Donald Trump's condo/hotel tower, and see how the city is opening up the banks of the river with river-walks, parks, and canoe launches for strolling, boating, and fishing. Filled with wonderful Chicago stories and breathtaking views, come take an incredible journey with "Chicago by Boat".
