By Christmas of 2001, everyone here was back to normal.

The lingering effect was distrust in those of Middle Eastern descent, and of course the creation of homeland security.
5-10 years is a long time, particularly for children; who already are suffering by missing out on the only time in their life to be children.

Yeah that may be on the long side. I’m guessing closer to 5 years.

I say yes. You obviously disagree.

I think you couldn't be more wrong about what covid will due to the country's psyche. I think it'll be forgotten the day the news stops beating us over the head with it.

I'm not saying we shouldn't wear masks etc.

But I am saying there were already people in Vegas laying by the hotel pools before the 4th of July. 'Normalcy' is much more likely than years of trauma.

So what's the theory here? Everybody is going to move from the city to Batavia, Yorkville, and DeKalb? Um, okay. We will see about that.

I think there is a huge political component to this myself given it's an election year. Relatedly I also think the "fear" is overblown by the media. I think people are much less afraid than what is being made out.

So the impact once the vaccine is created might be a lot less than what some people on here are saying.

What drove the downtown boom in the first place? Corporate relocations from the burbs to downtown to take advantage of the talent pool and vice versa. Now with remote work I don't think people will be tied to big cities as much as they were before. Not saying a move to Dekalb but a move to mid tier cities is totally on the table. I used to travel 90% of the time. Now we're at 100% remote work and likely only going back to 10-15% travel after covid. So no reason to live downtown for work anymore. From everything I'm hearing and reading a ton of other companies are doing the same.

I disagree. I think things will slowly go back to normal, but I don't think that will be anytime soon. I would say 3 years minimum, you will not see crowded bars or restaurants, buffets at work or other places, large parties/concerts, etc in the meantime.



It will take a vaccine that has been distributed to all segments of the population, and evidence that COVID is insignificant.


MLB is considering not even having fans at games or having significant social distancing so that it is not possible for the stadium to "sell out," so no, I don't think games would sell out if the Cubs made the World Series.


The remnants of COVID are not going away like turning off a light switch. I wish it would be that way, but it is wishful thinking. There will be a SLOW return to normal over a few years.

Ah alright. What's a "mid tier city?"

Yeah but you didn't answer the question tho.

If baseball happens, and fans were allowed into the stadium, would they go? Or is the public psyche so damaged that it could take 3+ yrs for them to feel comfortable going?

The answer is yes, Wrigley would sell out in a heartbeat this October if it were allowed to.

But this is boring now. Don't bother responding.

No Wrigley would not sell out in a heartbeat this October even "if" it were allowed to.

The public psyche "is" so damaged that it could take "at least" 3 years for many to feel comfortable going.

Again, a vaccine is the first step.

I will respond to you, even though this is boring. I know this isn't what you want to hear.......
