In the years following the Great Chicago Fire, which had destroyed much of the city in 1871, Chicago rebuilt and became America'a first Mid-American City of Commerce. Today, Chicago is listed as an alpha-global city, and ranks seventh in the world in the 2012 Global Cities Index.
The city's location on the shores of Lake Michigan, one of the world's largest freshwater bodies, adds to the beauty of Chicago's panorama. The collection of over 1,000 skyscrapers, lined up along the beaches, appears as one of the world's largest and most impressive skylines.
