Nothing like an abandoned, boarded up stairwell for some fun line analysis. Where the missing pillars are on the bottom stairwell are interesting because of the pillars directly behind them. Also, the erected fence adds even more to this.
Outside of the picture it’s weird though. I have no idea why they decided to not allow people to use these stairs. They go from the lake shore to Michigan Ave and the Lakefront Trail. Since these stairs are closed, you have to walk all the way around and take a ramp up with all the bikes and runners on the Lakefront Trail. They did the same thing on the other side of the river by Navy Pier too. Maybe they’re closed for the liability? Regardless, they make great pictures.
