Hmmm.... I think we have another New Yorker here.
Nope I'm a native to Cook County, just using a little imagination here and thinking outside the box.

That is fine. But why do you have to mention East Coast terms? Those terms have no relevance to the Chicago area except to a East Coaster. We do not know the if OP is an East Coaster or not.

I couldn't think of any other terms. The OP name tells me he/she is from the Pacific Northwest. As long as the infamous Chicago basher Demeator don't come in, its all good.

I'm going to Chicago in September. I am partial to a nice danish pastry so must remember not to fall into the trap of buying one lest i be accused of East Coastery.

Chicago is a city of neighborhoods, they're all really different. Your buddy from St. Louis should understand that pretty well, as it's a definite similarity between the two cities -- lots of small neighborhoods with their own look and feel.

It's more like 50 cities in 1.

I think the "North", "West" "Downtown" and "South" is actually very vague and random as far as breaking up the city.

Areas of the North side have about as much in common as an area on the South compared to West or North, etc.

Each neighborhood is fairly unique to a degree, regardless of which side of the city is lies.
