Happy Hump Day! So have you ever visited Windy City? I haven’t but when I saw this domain name has expired and ended up in auction it’s one that I am sure will be bidding on it, The domain name right now only has bids of $12 USD.
How did the name come about? The city of Chicago has been known by many nicknames, but it is most widely recognized as the “Windy City“.
The earliest known reference to the “Windy City” was actually to Green Bay in 1856. The first known repeated effort to label Chicago with this nickname is from 1876 and involves Chicago’s rivalry with Cincinnati. The popularity of the nickname endures to this day – 126 years after the Cincinnati rivalry ended.
