Chicago--The Windy City. Incorporated in 1837, this city of 2.7 million is the third largest in the United States. Chicago is a finance, industry, transportation, and telecommunications hub; it is also famous for its unique architecture, art scene, and music scene. The city rises from the shores of Lake Michigan at the mouth of the Chicago River. Chicago is home to such landmarks as the Willis (formerly Sears) tower, the John Hancock Center, Millennium Park, Cloud Gate, Soldier Field, Adler Planetarium, Wrigley Field, Navy Pier, and Chicago Union Station.
This photo depicts a calm Lake Michigan reflecting Chicago's skyline shotly before sunrise. A still lake is rare-- conditions have to be just right with no wind as the smallest ripples will ruin a reflection of Chicago's skyline.
