If you offer Cicero/Berwyn, I get to pitch in Evanston/Oak Park.....what they share in common is extensive....so you get one for the north and one for the west on this one.

Bungalow Belt....Good one!!

I actually thought of Oak Park and Evanston, but Oak Park lacks a college scene, so I decided against it..

How about Hyde Park/Evanston?

Evanston gets NU and the lake. Oak Park gets FLW and coose access to the Loop.

And, yes, I am in full agreement with you: if the question is “what place best fits in with Ev and OP...it would definitely be Hyde Park..even with it being a neighborhood, not municipality

Looking at your post, Positive energetic people who accomplish something, negative idiots who should leave town and take their negativity with them.

So when are you going? I can give you a lift to the airport if you want.

I was born in Chicago, but avoid it like the plague today. But I will make an exception in your case, if it helps you. That negativity is born of experience, by the way. Is anything I listed incorrect?

Yin DOES exist with Yang... Curly Q. Bobalink says they are originally from Chicago, and I'd have to say that most of the points Bobalink made ARE accurate. If those things existed/exist, you can't deny the facts... But I think, Bobalink, your points (except for perhaps the last one on pizza) don't exactly have a "fun" tone. And I think people were just trying to have fun with points of Chicago that they enjoyed. (Ex: I mentioned the different type of ethnic food flair based on the 2 sides of town)... Out of curiosity, besides the pizza, what if anything were the points of Chicago you DID like/enjoy, when you lived here?- Have a great day, everyone!- Master Jay in Milwaukee

Bears:
"In 1921, the Decatur Staleys, a charter member of the American Professional Football Association, moved to Chicago and kept their nickname, a nod to the team’s sponsor, the Staley Starch Company. When star player George Halas purchased the team the following year, he decided to change the nickname. Chicago played its home games at Wrigley Field, home of baseball’s Cubs, and Halas opted to stick with the ursine theme."

Yes, I kid. Though those are hot rumors.

I used to do some work for A.E. Staley, and have been to their HQ in Decatur. That city is a dump, but they have a cool, historic art-deco style building where they maintain their offices at the front of their large plant. They love their history, as they should.

I can't stand the people who bash Chicago and Illinois while still living here. Some may say, "but I can't leave because of my job/kids/friends/family/schools".

Hmmm, if a place has a good job for you, family around, friends nearby, schools you don't want to rip your kids out of, maybe it's not such a bad place.

Otherwise, just leave already.
