Chicago’s downtown movable/loop bridge
N. Michigan Avenue
Du Sable Bridge
On October 15, 2010, the Michigan Avenue bridge was renamed the DuSable Bridge in honor of Chicago’s first permanent resident – Jean Baptiste Pointe DuSable. DuSable, the son of a French pirate and a Haitian slave, established Chicago’s first trading post in 1779. His trading post was located near where the NE bridgehouse is today.
This bridge is considered by many to be the most spectacular of the 18 bridges. It has 4 ornate bridge tender houses. Each double-deck leaf is supported by 4 deck trusses. It is two bridges built side-by-side to allow one side to be open without blocking North Michigan Avenue off completely.
The bas relief sculptures on the south bridge tender houses commemorate the Fort Dearborn Massacre of 1812 (Fort Dearborn was located at the south end of today’s bridge) and the rebuilding of the city after the Great Fire of 1871. The bas relief sculptures on the north side bridge tender houses commemorate French explorers Marquette and Joliet; and early settlers Kinzie and DuSable.
In 2006, the SW bridge tender house became home to the McCormick Bridgehouse Museum. Displays of the history of the Chicago River, as well as the ability to see the operating machinery of the bridge, and to access to all levels of the bridge tender house make this museum a must see for both the bridge enthusiast and the river enthusiast.

Some late night fun with After Effects. If the clip gets popular, I’ll make more! (and maybe spend more time on the monster)
Thanks for watching!
I streamed the entire creative process on Twitch when I made this video a couple of years ago. Keep in mind I didn’t really know what I was doing, so it isn’t going to be a very good tutorial:

A very nice performance from Dortmund 1982 concert.
Chicago is a city in the U.S. state of Illinois, and is the third most populous city in the United States, and the most populous city in the American Midwest. Chicago was incorporated as a city in 1837, near a portage between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River watershed.
The most important places to visit in Chicago are: Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower, this iconic symbol of Chicago was the world’s tallest building when it was built), Millennium Park (a great urban park, among the most famous landmarks of Chicago and a site for many major city events), Shedd Aquarium (one of the world’s largest aquariums. It displays an impressive array of animals), Grant Park (called the front lawn of Chicago, the park is wonderfully landscaped and offers many sites for an urban escape), Navy Pier (situated right on Lake Michigan, the Pier has a festive atmosphere with entertainment, shops and restaurants) and many more.
