Navy Pier is a 1010 m long pier on the shoreline of Lake Michigan. It was built in 1916 to serve as a mixed-purpose piece of public infrastructure. Its primary purpose was as a cargo facility for lake freighters, and warehouses were built up and down the pier. The pier even had its own streetcar.
Today, the Navy Pier is Chicago's number one tourist attraction.
