The windy city, Chicago, is one of the premier destinations that we serve here at Babe-Directory.com. One of the top three cities in the United States in terms of population (after only Los Angeles and the Big Apple, New York City), Chicago is home to nearly three million people, while the greater Chicago area is more realistically an area of ten million population. The seat of Cook County, Chicago has been a city since 1837. It’s a center of worldwide commerce, technology, financial operations, telecommunications, and travel. Chicago’s infamous O’Hare International Airport is a frequent layover stop for many planes flying from one coast of the nation to the other, while Chicago’s local economy pumps out a gross of upward of 500 billion dollars a year. Each year, between 40 and 50 million tourists come to Chicago, a city which is known for its contributions to the theater, movies, comedy, music (soul, blues, and jazz especially) and popular fiction. Chicago is, in popular culture, truly one of the more influential cities in the United States, and one that Babe-Directory.com is proud to serve as we bring our lovely ladies into contact with dates they can enjoy.
Chicago is located in northeastern Illinois on the southwestern shores of Lake Michigan. It is the principal city in Chicago Metropolitan Area situated in the Midwestern United States and the Great Lakes region. Chicago sits on a continental divide connecting the Mississippi River and the Great. The city sits on Lake Michigan, and two rivers, the Chicago River and the Calumet River. The city’s history and economy owe much to its proximity to Lake Michigan. While the Chicago River historically handled much of the region's waterborne cargo, today's huge lake freighters use the city's Lake Calumet Harbor on the South Side. The lake also helps make Chicago’s weather more moderate, cooling it in the summer and warming it in the winter.
In 1795, after the Northwest Indian War, the place we would one day call Chicago was turned over to the United States for a military post by native peoples per the provisions of the Treaty of Greenville. In A few years later, the United States Army built Fort Dearborn. Some years later, in 1833, the municipality of Chicago was organized, and it grew in size through the start of the nineteenth century. Chicago officially became a city in 1837 and was one of the fastest growing urban areas in the country for many years after that. With the port of Chicago, the city became a very important transportation area connecting the nation to its coasts. The first of the Chicago railways opened in 1848, as did the Michigan Canal and the Illinois Canal. This permitted steamboat traffic to pass through the area. As the economy in the area expanded, so did the urban area and its trade. By the middle of the nineteenth century, the city was becoming prominent in national politics. No less than Abraham Lincoln himself was nominated in Chicago at the 1860 Republican National Convention. He would go on to win that presidential election, a win that many say is what touched off the Civil War in the United States.
The city continued to grow, and with this growth came the need to improve overall infrastructure in the city. A comprehensive sewer system was implemented in the middle of the nineteenth century, which was very important to improving health conditions there, as untreated sewage and industrial runoff was flowing unchecked into the Chicago River and polluting Lake Michigan. This is important because the lake was also the primary source of fresh water for the area, so the residents were polluting their very own water supply. Sewage matters were largely concluded by the beginning of the twentieth century.
No discussion of the history of Chicago would be complete without a discussion of the great fire that tore through the city in 1871, It destroyed an area four miles square, devastating a huge portion of the city of Chicago. Subsequent construction in the city of Chicago would prove to be much more resistant to fire, which was important, because the fire dealt a serious blow to the city. During this time and in the ensuing years, immigration continued to swell the size of Chicago. By 1900, three fourths of everyone living in the city was of foreign parentage or a first-generation immigrant. This led to various ethnic and labor conflicts during the industrial revolution, as economic pressures and racial tensions flared in Chicago just as they did in many other major urban areas in the United States. During the late nineteenth century, Chicago became prominent in a public health movement, the goal was to fight urban outbreaks of various diseases like smallpox, cholera, and yellow fever. The laws and health guidelines established and enforced by Chicago would come to be modeled by other public health agencies in later years, making Chicago a trendsetter in public health.
According to Wikipedia, the city invested in many large municipal parks, as well as public sanitation facilities. The chief architect of these public health developments was a Dr. John H. Rauch, M.D., who helped plan Chicago’s park system and, in 1866, created Lincoln Park (he closed a park that included shallow graves and helped create the new Chicago Board of Health). Also in the nineteenth century, Chicago became the nation's railway center. In 1893, the city hosted the World's Columbian Exposition where current day Jackson Park now stands. The Exposition boasted nearly 30 million visitors and was one of history’s most influential world’s fairs.
The early twentieth century was initially a time of growth for Chicago. Blacks from the south moved to the area to take advantage of the jobs that were available. Until the Great Depression, the black, population of Chicago increased to hundreds of thousands. This created what has been called the Chicago Black Renaissance, part of the New Negro Movement in art, literature, and music. As you can imagine, there were attendant racial tensions
Chicago was particularly hard hit by the enactment of Prohibition just prior to the twenties, which saw the sale and production of alcohol become illegal. This ushered in the beginning of what is known as the Gangster Era, a time that runs from 1919 until 1933 when Prohibition was repealed. The 1920s saw gangsters, including Al Capone, Dion O'Banion, Bugs Moran and Tony Accardo battle law enforcement and each other on the streets of Chicago during the Prohibition era. It was also in Chicago that the infamous St. Valentine's Day Massacre occurred in 1929. Famous gangster Al Capone had several members of a rival gang gunned down.
Chicago is infamous for corruption in politics, and its association with this dubious honor begins in the fifties with the election of the notorious Democrat Mayor Daley. During this time, many white residents of the city of Chicago fled the city in favor of the suburbs. This changed the tenor and character of entire neighborhoods. The economy of the city suffered greatly. Daley became a hugely controversial public figure. This was just the beginning of Chicago’s association with volatile politics. When the Democratic National Convention was hosted in Chicago in 1968, horrible riots broke out, and there was a great deal of political and social turmoil, some of it racial. The city got its first black mayor in the early 1980s, and with it there was some attempt to address the disparity in Chicago’s poorer neighborhoods, but Mayor Daley’s son was elected in the late 1980s and there was a big push for sustainable development. That Mayor Daley would be reelected multiple times and became the city’s longest serving mayor. He bowed out before his seventh term.
Chicago’s business district is the Chicago Loop. There are many other neighborhoods in the city. These include the South Side, the West Side, and the North Side. Arguably, the city can be separated into nearly 80 distinct neighborhood areas and further into 200 distinct neighborhoods. The city’s streets are a logical grid system and there are plenty of green areas and trees with sidewalks. Pedestrians therefore enjoy walking with some safety buffer between them and the Chicago traffic. Thanks to all the damage done by the Chicago Fire in the nineteenth century, a huge amount of rebuilding went on in the city afterward. There are lots of steel framed skyscrapers in the city, and the city is known for its skyline, which is one of the most dense and tall in the entire world. Among these towers are the Sears Tower, the Trump International Hotel and Tower, the Chicago Board of Trade Building, the Fine Arts Building, the Lake Shore Drive Apartments, and many others. There is also the Aon Center, also known as the Standard Oil Building, and the John Hancock Center.
You may have heard of the Chicago School, an architectural movement. Buildings that correspond to this school of architecture are prominent throughout Chicago, and the city also features the Polish Cathedral style of architecture. Additionally, Chicago is known for its public art. Some of these, according to Wikipedia, include Chagall's Four Seasons, the Chicago Picasso, Miro's Chicago, Calder's Flamingo, Oldenburg Batcolumn, Moore's Large Interior Form, Man Enters the Cosmos and Nuclear Energy, Dubuffet's Monument with Standing Beast, Abakanowicz's Agora, and Anish Kapoor's Cloud Gate, which has become heavily identified with the city of Chicago itself. Other prominent Chicago artwork includes the Great Northern Migration and the centennial of statehood for Illinois. There are two memorial monument fountains near Chicago’s Loop. These are Plensa's Crown Fountain and Burnham and Bennett's Buckingham Fountain.
Also according to Wikipedia. a number of other artworks in the city include those by Lorado Taft (Fountain of Time, The Crusader, Eternal Silence, and the Herald Square Monument completed by Crunelle), French's Statue of the Republic, Edward Kemeys Lions, Saint-Gaudens Abraham Lincoln: The Man (aka Standing Lincoln) and Abraham Lincoln: The Head of State (aka Seated Lincoln), Brioschi's Christopher Columbus, Meštrović's The Bowman and The Spearman, Dallin's Signal of Peace, Fairbanks's The Chicago Lincoln, Boyle's The Alarm, Polasek's memorial to Masaryk, memorials along Solidarity Promenade to Kościuszko, Havliček and Copernicus by Chodzinski, Strachovský, and Thorvaldsen, a memorial to General Logan by Saint-Gaudens, and Kearney's Moose. Some statues honoring local heroes include Michael Jordan (by Amrany and Rotblatt-Amrany), Stan Mikita, and Bobby Hull outside of the United Center, Harry Caray (by Amrany and Cella) outside Wrigley field, Jack Brickhouse (by McKenna) next to the WGN studios, and Irv Kupcinet at the Wabash Avenue Bridge.
According to Wikipedia, Chicago has the third largest gross metropolitan product in the United States, more than 500 billion. The city has also been rated as having the most balanced economy in the United States, due to its high level of diversification. Chicago was named the fourth most important business center in the world in the MasterCard Worldwide Centers of Commerce Index. Chicago was the base of commercial operations for industrialists John Crerar, John Whitfield Bunn, Richard Teller Crane, Marshall Field, John Farwell, Julius Rosenwald and many other commercial luminaries who are credited with building the foundation for global industry as based in the midwest.
Wikipedia explains that Chicago is a major world financial center, with the second largest central business district in the United States. The city is the headquarters of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago (the Seventh District of the Federal Reserve). Chicago is also home to major financial and futures exchanges, including the Chicago Stock Exchange, the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Chicago also has markets trading unusual contracts such as emissions (on the Chicago Climate Exchange) and equity style indices (on the U.S. Futures Exchange).

A large part of Chicago’s economy is devoted to food processing as well as to manufacturing and printing. There are multiple medical manufacturers headquartered in Chicago as well. These manufacturers include Boeing, Abbott Laboratories, General Electric (a division of it, anyway), Baxter International, United Airlines, Archer Daniels Midland, and many others. Because of its historic contributions to the meat packing industry, there are also many meat packing and related industries in Chicago. These include Armour and others involved in the beef and pork industries. Retail and the retail industry are also well represented in Chicago, including by Montgomery Ward, Sears, Walgreens, Sears, OfficeMax, and Ace hardware. When automobiles started to replace covered wagons, Chicago was part of that revolution, although the age of automobile manufacturing in Chicago has since ended. The Schwinn Bicycle Company originated in Chicago.

The city's main convention center is McCormick Place. With its four interconnected buildings, it is the largest convention center in the nation and third largest in the world. Chicago also ranks third in the U.S. (after Las Vegas and Orlando) in number of conventions hosted annually.
Chicago boasts a very vibrant nightlife and its waterfront area is part of its many popular tourist locations. At least one in three of Chicago’s residents lives in the waterfront area neighborhoods, which include the South Shore and Rogers Park. Plenty of high-end restaurants and eateries are located here, and there is plenty available to see and do in the downtown area. This is the central hub of all of the city’s governmental and financial organizations, and of course it is here that you can see Chicago’s many skyscrapers. According to Wikipedia, many of the city's financial institutions, such as the CBOT and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, are located within a section of downtown called the Loop. These areas contribute famous skyscrapers, abundant restaurants, shopping, museums, a stadium for the Chicago Bears, convention facilities, parkland, and beaches.

When it comes to sampling the cuisine of Chicago, the city lays claim to certain regional specialties that are undisputably part of Chicago. These include Chicago-style deep-dish pizza, and a Chicago-style hot dog, including many toppings that are unique to the city and kind of overwhelming. Many specialty Chicago sandwiches exist, including some that involve spicy sausage and other concoctions. Chicago is also credited with things like chicken Vesuvia, jibarito (a Puerto Rican sandwich), the Greek dish saganaki, and the work of various celebrity Chicago chefs, such as Charlie Trotter, Rick Tramonto, Grant Achatz, and Rick Bayless.
Chicago has a thriving literature culture that is strongly connected to the journalism field. Writers from Chicago have been very influential on the world stage. As you can imagine, a lot of the literature that originates in the city of Chicago is also devoted to the city itself, to life in the city, and what this feels and seems like to those who are living and working there. The city of Chicago is therefore in some ways a character of sorts that is featured heavily in the literature of the city, with all that this entails in terms of its impact on the genre and the influence that Chicago writers, novelists, and journalists have had through the years that the city has existed and affected popular culture.
If you like sports, Chicago has plenty of sports to offer, and the city is well known for its sporting venues. The city has housed professional sports since the nineteenth century. According to Wikipedia, Chicago is home to two Major League Baseball (MLB) teams: the Chicago Cubs of the National League (NL), who play in Wrigley Field on the North Side, and the Chicago White Sox of the American League (AL), who play in U.S. Cellular Field on the South Side. “Chicago is the only city that has had more than one MLB franchise every year since the AL began in 1901 (New York only hosted one between 1958 and 1962, and Los Angeles has only done so since 1961),” reads the article. “he Cubs are the oldest Major League Baseball team to have never changed their city, one of nine out of the sixteen teams to predate expansion that have not changed cities. They have played in Chicago since 1871, and continuously so since 1874 due to the Great Chicago Fire. They have played more games, have more wins and scored more runs than any other team in Major League baseball since 1876. They have won two World Series titles and are fifth among National League teams with 16 pennants, but have the dubious honor of having the two longest droughts in professional sports: They have not won their sport's title since 1908, and have not participated in a World Series since 1945, both records in their respective rights. The White Sox have played on the South Side continuously since 1901, with all three of their home fields throughout the years being within mere blocks of one another. They have won three World Series titles (1906, 1917, 2005) and six American League pennants, including the first in 1901. The Sox are fifth in the American League in all-time wins, and sixth in pennants.”
No discussion of sports in Chicago would be complete without mentioning the city’s football team, the NFL Chicago Bears. (Or “da Bears,” if you prefer.) Many people don’t realize that the Arizona Cardinals started out as the Chicago Cardinals. The Bears are the most winning NFL team in history. (Their long-standing rivals, Wisconsin’s Green Bay Packers, have won more championships, though.) Soldier Field in Chicago was extensively renovated in the early 2000s. Where basketball is concerned, there is of course the famous NBA Chicago Bulls. And if you like hockey, Chicago boasts the Chicago Blackhawks in the NHL. Chicago even has a Major League Soccer team, and the Chicago Sky in the WNBA.
