Chicago is the third biggest city in the country. Chicago is named after the Native American term for wild onions. Some people think that Chicago got the monicker “The Windy City” from it’s wheatear but it actually got the nickname from the reputation of the local politicians. They were referred to as being full of hot air. Chicago is known for it’s food, architecture, politics, skyline, lakeshore and sports teams.  The food that is my favorite is Italian beef. Italian beef is almost unheard of outside of Chicago but is starting to gain national attention. Lake Michigan borders the entire east side of the city which sometimes leads to flooding. There used to be more frequent flooding before the Chicago Fire enabled the city to be raised several feet.
