Nice view of the CTA metro in Chicago from Wells Kinzie Garage which has multiple floors that can be interesting for a closer or wider photo of the scene. The 5th to 7th floor is probably a good choice to check the perspective.

Important: Since this spot became popular they do not want photographers there anymore. Asking for permission is therefore still the right and safe way for this place and make sure to not disturb anybody. You obviously can hide your camera when you pass the security at the entrance, but that's up to you.

Photography Tips

Go to the top floor and look west. Set up and wait for a train to come winding around the S curve. I haven't gone to this spot at night, but I'm guessing it'd be pretty great for a long exposure shot. Due to the beautiful architecture around, this spot is even great during the day and not only for long-exposure photography.

I went Nov 2022. The carpark has a rooftop but it was closed. I was able to get some OK shots from a window in the stairwell on the 7th floor.

Poor weather conditions, but great location. New building can add some spectacular reflections of skyline.

They've built a new house here, so photos are not nearly as spectacular now.
