Railways radiate in every direction; it is a major Great Lakes port and is connected to the Mississippi river by a ship canal and the Illinois River; and its airport is the busiest in the world.





Its stockyards and grain elevators handle huge quantities of foodstuffs. Industries include iron and steel, and electronics. Chicago is known as 'Windy City', and it became infamous during Prohibition in the 1920s for its alcohol bootleggers, such as the gangsters Al Capone and Bugsy Moran.
