                               Chicago has spoken:
                           The top 7 Wonders of Chicago



               The 1st Wonder is: The Lakefront
               One of the top activities is the "Dog Beach" on the North Side. People are able to let their
               Retrievers and herders run amok along the shore.
               Then there's the Navy Pier on the east side downtown with a view of the skyline that takes
               your breath away. And Shakespeare, and a Ferris wheel!
               On the south shore there's the Cultural Center where the water moves to the sounds of
               Jazz.
               Become one of the million people who flock to the 4th of July fireworks. In the summer, the
lake offers respite from the heat and a place of solitude for an early morning run in winter.



                             The 2nd Wonder is: Wrigley Field
                             Formerly a working class neighborhood, Wrigleyville, is the neighborhood
                             directly surrounding Wrigley Field along North Clark and West Addison
                             Streets. Wrigleyville features lowrise brick buildings and houses, some with
                             rooftop bleachers colloquially called Wrigley Roofs.




                            The 3rd Wonder is: The "L"
                            The 'L' consists of a network of eight heavy rail lines totalling 106.1 route
                            miles (57.1 miles elevated, 36.9 miles surface, and 12.1 miles subway) on
                            over 242.6 miles of double-track rail line with 144 stations. The oldest
                            section dates from 1892. The 'L' primarily serves the city proper plus eight
                            close-in suburbs. Seventeen stations, mainly newer or at outlying locations,
                            include "park-'n'-ride" facilities with a total of more than 6,600 parking
spaces. About 15% of the total track length is underground.

               Kuala umpur reached 1,483 ft. Then in 2004, the Petronas Towers were
               surpassed by Taipei 101 in Taipei Taiwan when it reached 1,671 ft.

                  Chicago Water Tower is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and
                  serves as the Chicago Convention and Tourism Bureau Visitor's Welcome
                  Center.

                  The tower, built in 1869 by architect William W. Boyington from yellowing Joliet
                  limestone, is 154 feet tall. Inside was a 138 foot high standpipe to hold water. In
                  addition to being used for firefighting, the pressure in the pipe could be
                  regulated to control water surges in the area.




         The 6th Wonder is: The University of Chicago
         Responsible for 78 Nobel Prize winners (all faculty members, students or researchers),

         Educational Society, on land donated by Marshall Field. It has become one of the world's
         pre-eminent institutions of learning and advancing knowledge. As the school motto notes:
         Crescat scientia; vita excolatur ("Let knowledge grow; let life be enriched").

                    The 7th Wonder is: The Museum of Science and Industry
                    The Museum of Science and Industry was established in 1926 by wealthy Sears,
                    Roebuck & Company chairman Julius Rosenwald, who pledged $3 million to the
                    institution. He eventually donated about $7 million. He also insisted that his name not
                    appear on the building, but nonetheless, for the first few years of the museum's
existence, it was known as the Rosenwald Industrial Museum. The name of the museum was later
change to the Museum of Science and Industry in 1928.



             8th Place is: The Chicago River
             In the 1770s, Jean Baptiste Pointe du Sable built his farm on the northern bank of the river
             near Wolf Point, the first non-Native American settlement of Chicago, and early in the next
             century Fort Dearborn was built on the southern bank of the river.




                    9th Place is: Millennium Park
                    It was Mayor of Chicago Richard M. Daley's ambitious idea to realize that which was
                    originally designed as part of Daniel Burnham's Plan of Chicago, a plan for the future
                    of Chicago created in 1909.




                         10th Place is: Chicago Blues
                          The Chicago blues is a form of blues music that developed in Chicago, Illinois by
                         adding electrically amplified guitar, drums, piano, bass guitar and sometimes
                         saxophone to the basic guitar/harmonica Delta blues. The music developed
                         mainly as a result of the "Great Migration" of poor black workers from the South
                         into the industrial cities of the North such as Chicago in particular, in the first half
                         of the twentieth century.




               11th Place is: Chicago hot dog
               The style, once known as a "Depression sandwich," is generally acknowledged as having

         12th Place is: The Chicago theater scene
         Theater is the heart and soul of Chicago with The Goodman Theater (Chicago's oldest
         currently-active nonprofit organization), Steppenwolf (founded in 1974 by Gary Sinise, Terry
         Kinney and Jeff Perry in the basement of a church) and Second City (an improvisational
         comedy troupe started in 1959 and is based in the Old Town). If you're in Chicago, you
         better be in a Theater!




                      13th Place is: Lower Wacker Drive
                      Locals love to surprise their out of town friends with a drive into lower Wacker,
                      a twisting, tunnel-like roadway you'd swear was built for the sole purpose of
                      filming car chases.




                    14th Place is: Chicago bungalows
                    The majority of Chicago Bungalows were built between 1910 and 1940. They
                    were typically constructed from brick (sometimes in decorative patterns) and had
                    one and a half stories. At one point, nearly a third of the houses in the Chicago
                    area were bungalows.
