Ping Tom Park Boathouse Ready for Use

New Ping Tom Park Boat House (via Chicago Architecture Blog)
A reader sent us the following link to a post on the Architecture Chicago Plus blog:
Sunday saw a combination celebration at Ernest Wong's wonderful Ping Tom Park along the south branch of the Chicago River, with the dedication of a handsome new boathouse by Johnson and Lee, and the culmination of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's Rivers series of events with the fabled brass section floating down the river (on a boat) and Music Director Riccardo Muti conducting the Chicago Childrens Choir in a performance of Verdi's Va Pensiero (twice). A happy Mayor Emanuel was also on hand.
