If cities want to remain attractive, that is just how it is going to be. I could easily live in Miami, SF, LA, Boston (and have done so) etc... but chose Chicago over it, I think a lot of other people have this option also, and still choosing Chicago.

You might feel that way, but in reality what you claim is doubtful.

The suburbanite portion might be true however.

How is Lincoln Park leading this poll? From what I gathered LP has become a cliche and not cool to like Lincoln Park. Based upon the posts in this forum, I would have guessed it was one of the most unpopular. I do like the Architecture their however, and it is one of my favorite spots in the city and where I have spent most of my time even if 90% of the people there are from Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

Transplants love it and most people that post in this forum are transplants.

I just went through and clicked a bunch of neighborhoods that I either personally like or at least have an interesting vibe that adds to the unique fabric of the city even if I wouldn't care to live there.

eh...no, I'm quite sure it's true the organizations that have hired me to do extremely "chicago related" data mining projects seem to think so also. experience is different than knowledge. what I am saying is, there are plenty of people who come here and "embrace the city" and learn extremely fast...they shouldn't be marginalized as an "outsider".

"Data mining" does not necessarily you know where to get a good cheeseburger on the northwest side.

There is more than one kind of knowledge.

Well I kinda see where native Chicagoans are coming from as well as transplants who do decide to make an effort to really get to know the city that are annoyed about hearing the complaints. You two are more alike than different when it comes to wanting the "best" for the city. I say if ever those two groups combine and listen to one another it'll be a positive force to be reckon with.
