Chicago is a highly populated city in Illinois.

HistoryEdit

In the early 1990s, the Rookie relocated to Chicago to start up a Ghostbusters franchise but ran into bureaucratic obstacles. He continued to bust ghosts by exploiting loopholes and grew to love the city. A few years later, the Ghostbusters stopped in Chicago at the end of their summer trip to help him trap a Ghost Shark on North Lake Shore Drive. [1] After the bust, they ate at Dick's Pizza. Just before the next summer, Chicago was plagued by the ghost of a Prohibitionist who turned the Chicago River into non-alcoholic beer. [2] Ron Alexander was sent to Chicago to work for the Rookie.

After the Hart Island battle, the Chicago Ghostbusters were called back to Chicago to real with the ghosts of slaughtered cows from the stockyards of decades past who were running through the Magnificent Mile and goring the tourists. Dani Shpak and Lou Kamaka were hired and joined the Chicago Ghostbusters to help deal with the situation. They were able to trace and neutralize the source of the haunting before anyone was seriously hurt but the Chicago River burned for three days afterward.
