Chapter 7: Rogers Park, Edgewater, Uptown, and Chicago Lawn, Chicago
Loyola University of Chicago
AbstractThe city of Chicago stands tall among urban areas in the United States. It features a bustling central business district that serves as a financial anchor for the Midwest, a government with significant regional and national influence, a vibrant cultural life, a multi-ethnic population, a patchwork of distinct neighborhoods that are home to nearly 3 million people, one of the world's busiest airports, and the world's tallest building (at least for the time being). With its towering skyscrapers, lush and expansive park system, lavish North Michigan Avenue, and historic landmarks, Chicago opens an impressive front door to all who visit.
