This image of Monroe Street, with Millennium Park and North Garden alongside, was taken from the Nichols Bridgeway on the east side of Chicago.
To access the bridge from Millennium Park, enter along Monroe Street. For reference, the entrance to the bridge is across the pavilion south of Cloud Gate (also known as the Bean).
