It was a cute little place though and I remember what a nice tree lined street it was. First time I saw so many orthodox jews too! Id seen them before but they were everywhere! They dont talk much though.
Those Jews talk, just NOT to us! The ONLY good thing about that nabe, is it's very safe. The location is pretty good also. But if you ain't an indian or a Jew, you'll feel out of place there.

That's not some kind of dig either, just what I've observered after years of living there.
Maybe a little exaggeration (it is Friday afternoon after all), but I personally know someone who got a tire slashed -- and it wasn't them who moved the stuff out of the spot.

Sometimes, yes. If they were really, really nice shoes

Otherwise, you can in fact walk on ice in heels. You can't walk like a man on ice in heels, and most women make that mistake.

Small steps, small steps. I regularly flew through foot traffic in heels, on Michigan Avenue, in winter. It is possible.

I agree that you may die.
