#36: America's Central Port/YMCA

The only cake in Granite City, Illinois. Usually when people think of Granite City, they most likely think of the steel mill which helped build the city. Granite City was originally a suburb of East St. Louis, that was built on German and Polish immigrants who easily found work in its factories. The city became a healthy working-class town. However, in the last 3 decades the town has, well, I'm not sure the best way to put it, but has slipped in such a way. There's a lot of factors I could get into. But despite of all this, Granite City is the largest city in Madison County, Illinois.
