Views of the beaches at Oak Street and North Avenue

by Joe Zekas on 8/13/12

The eastern views from some Lake Shore Drive high-rises might not be very inspiring in the dead of night, but they can be endlessly interesting on a summer day.

The 39-unit Benjamin Marshall-designed building at 1200 N Lake Shore Dr has a rooftop sundeck with the above views of Oak Street and North Avenue beaches.

The luxury condos at The Carlyle, 1040 N Lake Shore Dr, have what are arguably the best views of Oak Street beach.

The roof deck at 990 N Lake Shore Drive and the 44th-floor grocery at the Hancock overlook Oak Street and North Avenue beaches – and points further north.

The view of North Avenue beach from the roof deck at 1515 N Astor is partially obscured by LSD high-rises.

You’ll get a much better view of North Avenue beach from Castaways Bar and Grill, which is in the ocean-liner-like beach house pictured in the helicopter shot by our ace photographer, Michael Kardas.

You’ll find many more Chicago vistas in YoChicago’s Flickr albums, in our videos at YouTUbe, and in earlier posts.
