The Indiana Harbor complex is one of the largest integrated steelmaking facilities in North America and is located in East Chicago, Indiana, just 20 miles southeast of Chicago. Indiana Harbor is a diverse facility capable of making a full range of flat products and is a leader in the North American development of new automotive products. It is a primary supplier of coils to Cleveland-Cliffs Tek and Kote.
Northwestern Pritzker School of Law is located at the eastern edge of Northwestern's 20-acre Chicago campus, in one of the city's most active and desirable neighborhoods. To the east is Lake Michigan; to the west, Chicago's premier shopping district, Michigan Avenue's "Magnificent Mile"; to the north, the elegant Gold Coast residential neighborhood. The city provides an ideal setting for the study of law, and students take advantage of the location through visits to local courts, law firms, and corporations.
As the video above describes, Chicago's street system was a complicated mess well into the early 20th Century. Although the 1830 city plan made provision for an orderly system of north-south and east-west streets, the annexation of surrounding communities (such as the Village of Hyde Park) had led to duplications of names, and even whole addresses, across the growing city. Things got so bad that the postal service threatened to stop delivering mail to Chicago addresses.
In 1901, Rogers Park resident (and private citizen) Edward P. Brennan approached the city council with a solution: re-name and re-number nearly all city streets according to a new convention, wherein street numbers would locate properties relative to central X (east-west) and Y (north-south) axes, with an imaginary center point at the intersection of Madison (east-west) and State (north-south) streets, in the heart of the downtown business district. Eight years (and dozens of City Council meetings) later, Brennan's proposal was adopted by the city council, and the Chicago grid system was implemented.
Learning the grid system requires some effort, but once you understand it, it will enable you to navigate Chicago with much more confidence. A grid-savvy Chicagoan immediately knows, for example, that Harper Library (1116 E. 59th St.) can be found on the north side of 59th Street, which should be an east-west road approximately 7 miles south of the city center (and therefore on the South Side). That same Chicagoan, when asked to meet a friend at Kimbark plaza (53rd and Woodlawn) on a cold winter evening after a long day of studying in Harper, immediately recognizes that this would involve a seven block walk, that that's almost a mile, and that they don't want to do it in January. See how useful?
Although there are a few exceptions (see "diagonals" below), almost all Chicago streets run either north-south or east-west. To make matters even simpler, those directions reflect actual compass directions: a "north-bound" street in Chicago really does run toward the north pole, a "west-bound" street will eventually take you to Iowa, and an "east-bound" street will always drop you in Lake Michigan.
Brennan's plan for Chicago's new numbering system effectively divided the city into quadrants, delineated by State St. (north-south) and Madison St. (east-west) -- see the red lines on the historic map below. Because of this, each street address in Chicago now includes a cardinal direction (N, S, E, or W). This lets you know two things about an address:
This leads to another handy rule of thumb: since State St. (which divides streets into E and W) is located fairly close to the lake, and the shoreline of Chicago is a slight diagonal, almost any street that begins with "E" (i.e., that is located east of State St.) will either be in the loop or on the South Side of the city -- see the lower right quadrant of the map below to visualize this.
This is a simple, but important rule to remember: the center of the grid (that is, the place where the X and Y axes cross) is at State and Madison, in the heart of Chicago's historic downtown/the Loop. Remember: State is a north-south street, and Madison is an east-west street.
To restate the previous rule in terms of this new knowledge, any address that begins with "N" (e.g., N Broadway) will be located on a north-south street, and north of the imaginary line created by Madison street. Any address that begins with "S" (e.g. S Western Blvd) will be located on a north-south street, but south of Madison. An address that begins with "W" (e.g. W Roosevelt Rd) will be an east-west street located somewhere west of State St. And finally, an address that begins with "E" (e.g., E 59th St.) will be an east-west street located to the east of State St., and will almost certainly be located either in the Loop or on the South Side (due to the curve of the lakeshore).
Both this rule and the previous rule suggest an important observation: prefixes are essential in knowing where you are supposed to be in the city. By virtue of its grid system, Chicago frequently has two versions of each address, one on each side of either Madison (for north-south streets) or State (for east-west streets). To return to a previous example, Harper Library is located at 1116 E 59th St. There is also a building at 1116 W 59th -- it's actually an empty lot on a quiet block in Englewood.
This means (to return to a previous example) that 101 N State isn't just "kinda more north" than 1 N State. It means that it is exactly 1 block north of it! Likewise, the Willis Tower (233 S. Wacker) isn't just "somewhere south of Madison" -- it's about 2.5 blocks south of it. Likewise, we can now say with confidence that Harper Library (located at 1116 E. 59th) is a little over 11 city blocks east of State St.
In the example we just cited, we know with confidence that Belmont St. (3200 N) is 8 blocks = 1 mile north of Fullerton (2400 N)...assuming the same east/west location, of course. (In other words, the corner of Belmont and Western -- 3200 N Western Ave -- is going to be exactly 1 mile north of the corner of Fullerton and Western -- 2400 N Western Ave.) Likewise, it's easy to guess that it's only a half mile to walk from the corner of Damen (2000 W) and Cermak to the corner of Ashland (1600 W) and Cermak -- a nice walk across the south edge of the Pilsen neighborhood!
Another feature of the Brennan proposal that was eventually adopted by the city is a simple, but helpful, numbering convention: in the city of Chicago, address numbers on the north and west sides of streets are always even, and address numbers on the south and east sides are always odd.
A final set of "mini" naming conventions can be seen downtown. Most of the east-west streets in the Loop are named after presidents (Roosevelt, Van Buren, Adams, Madison, Monroe, Washington), and the north-south streets after historic persons or places (Roosevelt, Dearborn, Clark, LaSalle). Once you get north of the river, there's a band of east-west streets named after the Great Lakes (Huron, Superior, Erie, Ontario, and -- running north-south -- Michigan). These are followed by a set of streets named after local trees (Chestnut, Oak, Maple, Cedar, and Elm).
