A Video History Of Wacker Drive
WCIU’s Me and You This Morning did a mini-documentary on the history of Wacker Drive the other day.
Interestingly, the upper and lower tier model was the brainstorm of visionary urban planner Daniel Burnham who was so amazingly influential in his vision for the future of the city.
Many a Hollywood production company has used Wacker Drive as a backdrop in films including the Blues Brothers and Batman.
Of course, Lower Wacker Drive is an amazing short cut for hardcore Chicago drivers to get between Lake Shore Drive and the entrance to the Eisenhower Expressway at Congress.
