The sixth boro has no channels quite like Chicago, channels I’d like to see all.  And here I was pleased to

meet an ice breaker and more that.  If crew on Versluis ask if you want to see their crib, take advantage of that opportunity.

The Jean Baptiste Pointe du Sable Bridge illustrates the logic of the design.

And the namesake?  Here’s the story, as well as links to some ice breaking video clips.
