No matter how you get around, you'll have no trouble navigating the city, thanks to Chicago's grid system. The State/Madison intersection marks the origin of the grid—the 0/0 mark—with every eight blocks equaling one mile. State Street divides the city east and west, while Madison Street divides the city north and south. Every address is relative to the 0/0 mark. For example, 900 N. Michigan Avenue is roughly nine blocks north of Madison Street on Michigan Avenue.
