My cousin used to live on the 3200 block of N. Monticello until 1993 when they moved to fabulous Niles.

I'd happily take a bullet before having to move Niles. To real city folk that is pretty much a prison sentence.

In terms of real news, here's yet another company leaving Avondale/Chicago that actually MADE STUFF:

Replogle Globes moving on :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Business (http://www.suntimes.com/business/2939000,globe-CST-120210.article - broken link)

Meanwhile, that TIF'd up industrial corridor between Kedzie & Kimball and Belmont & Addison continues to be a joke. There's a storage company. A place that sells knock-off persian rugs. A candy outlet. An office supply company.

They're Polish immigrants. To hear them speak, Niles is one small step below heaven.

as far as suburbs go, Niles is ok. but personally, give me a hustling bustling city or give me an honest to god small town. I despise the must-drive-everywhere strip mall hells that are most of the Chicagoland burbs.

Very true....that's why I liked growing up in the Berwyn-Oak Park area (family only had 1 car). One of the few suburban areas that had stuff you could walk to. Niles isn't a horrible place, but it's pretty darn boring.

Is there a neighborhood you do like, besides your beloved Lakeview?
