Chicago Harbor Southeast Guidewall Light

This steel box on a skeletal steel base is located on the breakwater outside the Navy Pier near downtown Chicago. It marks the end of the breakwater for vessels entering the lock at the mouth of the Chicago River.

The light is an active aide to navigation and can only be viewed from private boat or one of the harbor cruise boats operating from Nay Pier.
