This memorable tour, with fellow Cornell Alumni and friends, will cover all 3 branches of the Chicago River. Along the way, knowledgeable and entertaining guides will point out more than 50 architectural masterpieces as they recount the story of Chicago's rise from the ashes of the Great Fire of 1871 to become the home of the skyscraper and the center of modern American architecture.
