Chicago is well known for its architecture and tall buildings. The 100-story John Hancock Center is a self-contained world of apartments, restaurants and shops.

Baseball is a popular American sport. Chicago has two professional baseball teams. The Chicago Cubs play at Wringley Field. Built in 1914, Wringley Field is the second oldest major league ballpark in the country. The stadium first welcomed the Chicago Cubs in 1916 and the two have been synonymous ever since. Wringley Field is the nation's most picturesque ballpark with its ivy-covered brick outfield walls and the manually operated scoreboard.
