Time difference between Kenosha and other cities

Other cities info:

Kenosha (/kəˈnoʊʃə/ ) is a city in the U.S. state of Wisconsin and the seat of Kenosha County. Per the 2020 census, the population was 99,986 which made it the fourth-largest city in Wisconsin. Kenosha sits on the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan and is the fourth-largest city to border it. Although closer to Milwaukee (about 40 miles) than to Chicago (about 66 miles), the United States Census Bureau considers Kenosha a Chicagolandsatellite city. Kenosha was once a center of industrial activity; it was home to large automotive factories which fueled its economy. Like other Rust Belt cities, Kenosha lost these factories in the late 20th century, causing it to gradually transition into a hub for the services-based economy of today, although the city did not experience massive population decline. In recent years, the city and surrounding county have benefited from increased job growth, although ongoing gentrification has caused an increase in housing and rental costs. It is home to the headquarters of the Fortune 1000 tool manufacturer Snap-on Inc., as well as the clothing company Jockey International. Kenosha is home to multiple educational institutions including the University of Wisconsin–Parkside, Carthage College, and Gateway Technical College. Residents of the city are called Kenoshans.
