Depends parts of it are nice....and some, not so nice. I probably wouldn't move there from Ontario. I wouldn't live there either personally. Here's some information on the area and it's pretty accurate.

Not a problem, want to give me more information on what you're looking for specifically? That way I can perhaps make a few suggestions for you.

South Shore was once a nice area but those days have long since passed.

Just cheap housing, since most of Greater Chicago is expensive.

Are you looking for a certain ethnic group to live around? I mean, honestly CHicago is very segregated, lol. We can literally pick out neighborhoods by the ethnic group. What's your price range? Is diversity a factor for you? Is there anything you want/need to be near or close to?

From what I know of the south shore it seems to be moving in the right direction....but compared to an interesting suburb in the GTA a relatively short train ride to downtown Toronto it seems like it has a long way to go.
