About Chicago

Chicago covers 60,000 hectares of land and is known around the world for its arts, history, sports and environmental sustainability. Some famous and successful people are from here including Walt Disney, Harrison Ford and Hillary Clinton. There are an estimated 86 million people per year who come to explore the numerous attractions, and with so many people coming in and out of the city, a Chicago hackathon space would thrive here.

This town received its name from the Algonquin words of “Chicagou” and “Shikaakwa” meaning “onion field” or “wild garlic”. The area was originally inhabited by indigenous peoples, and the first settler to arrive in Chicago, Jean Baptiste du Sable, was an African-American man from Haiti. The city grew quickly thanks to its key location on the Chicago River and Lake Michigan, which allowed it to become a thriving commercial hub. It remained an important city in the US with a strong economy thanks to the development of the railways and aviation center.

Disadvantages

  • Crime
    Some of Chicago’s neighborhoods can be more violent than others with gang activity and gun violence happening daily. Unemployment and inequity are some of the causes for the crime, which are also downsides of the town. Depending on where you choose your hackathon space in Chicago, consider providing security to protect the people and equipment inside.

  • Expensive
    When you are thinking of hosting an event in Chicago, you’ll want to make a budget plan in order to afford everything. You will have to pay more here than you would in some other areas, as the cost of living averages at 20% higher compared to the rest of the nation.

  • Traffic
    With the 3rd worst ranked traffic in all US cities and 7th worst compared to the rest of the world, Chicago can be a difficult place to get around. This is understandable as the city is so big and highly populated, but keep in mind that you might have trouble getting places by car.

  • Museum of Science and Industry
    Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry is found on the northern end of Jackson Park. It was first established in 1933 and is said to be the city’s most impressive museum.
