OK, I feel like doing one of these pick your places threads now!

I know they are not the best cities in the world, but if you had to chose one over the other, which one would it be?

Don't know too much about Elgin but Aurora is not as bad as most people make it out to be. Aurora has a lot of beautiful homes available here. I work and seen all parts of the Aurora city. We have communities like Stongate, Stonebridge, White Eagle, Orchard Valley and many more that has lavish homes upward toward 1 M. There's a stretch of modest homes down Orchard Rd., Eola, Rt. 59, Wolf Crossing, Rt. 30 and Randall Rd. Prices on new construction in Aurora is more than Oswego and Montgomery.Although Aurora schools may be the poorest in the surrounding areas. It seems that most people link the negativity of Downtown and old parts of Aurora with the entire city. Wherever it poverty in a concentrated area of the city of course their will be crimes. I like to say for a fact that there is more good parts than bad parts of Aurora.

We've already done the Aurora VS Elgin poll thanks to Steve-O's daily post, please read his polls if you want to know people's thoughts. Addison vs GH, Addison wins my vote.

There's no way I could vote for Addison. I've never been there but they seem like real jack offs with that whole AC ban.

Why is everyone so down on Aurora?Aurora is just like any big city like Chicago. The city has some crappy parts as well as good parts. Just don't go into the bad areas and you will be fine. Stay on the far east side of Aurora near the Naperville border and you will be fine, you will probably love it !

I'm not down on Aurora, I just have a hard time seeing it as a suburb of Chicago because it's so darn far away.

Actually my Grandpa Jack was born and raised in Aurora.
