Rivets, railings, trusses...flowers? Just a few miles south of your new rental home stands the Franklin-Orleans Bridge, considered amongst Chicago's most beautiful. Springing to life in 1920, this Trunnion Bscule (French for see-saw) is 62 feet wide with a 220-foot span that rises for passing boats. To this day the bridge retains its original railings, which have flowers etched into their panels.
Back down the road a bit, you'll find that same high level of attention to detail, with newly rehabbed living spaces featuring hardwood floors; kitchens with cherry wood cabinets and new appliances, as well as individual climate control and complimentary amenities such as internet & DirecTV Programming. There's more to love...including this fun tidbit: Batman Begins did many takes speeding across the Franklin-Orleans on its way to Gotham City.
