Image Caption: Chicago by day. The population of the city of Chicago, IL is roughly 3 million people, but metropolitan Chicago includes nearly 10 million. This image stretches from East Chicago and Gary IND (bottom left) to Kenosha IL (right). The contrast between the gray urban region comprising metropolitan Chicago and the surrounding coastal plain is relatively unimpressive.
