river or canal?

with a little dirt and some asphalt, you could turn it into some parking lots or a mega thruway;)

Your right... Hmmm maybe I should have photo shop the Chicago Sun Times Sign now that I think about...

Extra 10 points if you can tell me what year they reversed the flow,
and what this river has more of (in chicago) than any other river in any other city in the world.

I couldn't read the Sun Times sign...It just looked like a scene from the Chicago River. Don't ask how, 'cause I don't know. I fact I've never been to Chicago before.

Now for my 10 bonus points.
The River's flow was reversed in 1900 due to numerous deadly outbreaks in the city. I suppose the river was nothing more than a big open sewer back then. As for your second bonus question, I'm going to guess that this river has more dead mobsters than any other river in any other city in the world. ;-)

Bridges?

Edit: Apparantly just replying "bridges" is too short because it is under 10 characters, so I have to type this sentence.
