manufacturing is one of the biggest industries in chicago.

and chicago has one of america's busiest ports. the city stretches for about forty kilometers along the southwestern shore of lake michigan. the saint lawrence seaway opened in nineteen fifty-nine. it connects the great lakes to the atlantic ocean.
