Chicago and its 16-mile Lake Michigan shoreline. Chicago’s centre—known as the Loop—lies at the mouth of the Chicago river. The location was ideal for settlement about two centuries ago because it was a point where lake and river traffic converged. The Navy Pier was built in 1916 at this transportation node primarily as a cargo facility for Great Lakes freighters. The city centre still occupies the same location.
