My Home, My City
My hometown, “The Windy City” as some may call it, is the third largest city in the United States. Where I call home some of the world’s biggest names do to, from Barack Obama, to organized crime boss Al Capone, down to one of the NBA’s best, Derrick Rose. The United Center is the home of the 2013 Stanley Cup Champions, the Blackhawks. For the sports fans of my city, we know that the last time the Blackhawks won the championship, the Bears went to Super Bowl XLI.
The United Center is also home to the Bulls. Every year, every season, my city holds a host of specials events for the city, and sometimes people come from every part of the world just for that special event. In the middle of August, there is a free Air and Water Show held on the lakefront of North Avenue Beach. This is a time, when different types of planes from the Army, National Guard, and sometimes even Wars fly around the city and show off their tricks.
201 East Randolph Street, is the corner where Millennium Park sits just off Michigan Ave.
Millennium Park is filled with architecture, landscape design, and art that allows you to actually touch and feel the piece of work. During the year, held in this park, are cultural programs, concerts, tours, and family activities. It is the “Town Square” of my city, and a place where tourist come to see for themselves! Throughout the summer for a week, the downtown streets are blocked off for “The Taste”. “The Taste” is an outdoor festival with the diversity of the city’s dining community. The variety of food served is also enjoyed by music and exciting activities for the whole family. Our forms of public transportation, pertain to the CTA known as the “L”. The “L” is a train system that runs from the south, north, east, and west side of my city, and if you want to go a further distance, you would take the Metra. My city is an overall great city, but it’s not the safest.
