The view from Franklin-Orleans Street Bridge captures three things that make Chicago special: the L train, the Chicago River and the landmark architecture of Wells Street Bridge. During the winter, you can feel an even greater sense of the city's character as the icy waters exemplify a winter's day in The Windy City.
