The Loop is home to Chicago's commercial core, the City Hall, the seat of Cook County. It is also home to the Trump Tower, Chicago Bean, and the SEARS tower. About 29,283 people live in the Loop. Many students go to DePaul University which is located in the Loop. The fire of 1871 nearly destroyed the Loop but Germans, Irish, and African Americans still lived there.
