Chicago's Mayor Daley helped cut the ribbon for the new DuSable Harbor Boathouse facility.The 3500-sq. ft. building houses a dining facility, a store, restrooms, and showers for boaters. The building is also environmentally friendly, and 40 percent of the construction materials were recycled.

A new bridge also makes it easier for pedestrians to cross the lakefront trail.
