Chicago is one of the few great cities of the world which is built directly on a lake front. It is located at the southwest corner of Lake Michigan (lat. 41° 50', long. 87° 38′ W.), somewhat less than half-way from the equator to the north pole, on a crescent-shaped plain gradually rising from the level of the lake.

The following street intersections are the highest street corners in Chicago. Six are located in the southern part of the city in the Beverly and Morgan Park community areas; the others in the northwest part of the city in the Norwood Park, Montclare, and Belmont-Cragin community areas:
