About Gary, IN

Gary is a middle-sized city located in Indiana, and its close proximity to the Illinois city of Chicago makes many consider it as a Chicago suburb.

Gary was at one point known for its manufacturing industries, but many of those industries have left the city. Gary was also the home of the famous Jackson 5 music group.
