How long have you been in n Miller. Bought my place a decade ago when Miller was super cheap. My place has gone up 5x in value since I purchased it.

I am friends with Gary's top real estate agent and he told me that EVERY neighborhood in Gary has set record sales prices for flipped homes.

Did you read the article I linked? NWI has not been this vibrant since the 60's. It is a historic shift in energy for what was one of the country's most distressed regions.

The South Shore Line from Millennium Station all the way to South Bend will become Chicagoland's closest approximation to a European/Asian train corridor

IMHO
Chicago-Gary is already sometimes listed as the metro. So is Chicago-Naperville. And Chicago-Elgin-Joliet.

There are some growing areas in NWI for sure, as it's more affordable and taxes are lower, but it will never overtake DuPage or Lake County as the epicenter or the "it" place to live for upper middle class suburbanites.

Maybe just take the fact it's an improving area without making outlandish claims?

I'm a futurist. These claims aren't outlandish. Revisit this thread in a decade and NWI will remain the growth leader of Chicagoland. Illinois' dysfunction and ridiculous taxes aren't going away anytime soon.

And Indiana is hardly at risk of woke bankruptcy vis-a-vis Illinois. NWI has 8,000,000 potential future residents.

Downtown Hammond nd will be hardly recognizable in the complex coming years.

Michigan City is on the Cusp of nearly half a billion dollars in downtown development.

The entire region is progressing. Again, it is a definite plus for Chicago to share a border with a fiscally sane state.

Ah, there it is. Your POV makes total sense now. I should have known - this is the case almost every time. A couple of probing questions and it always comes out.

Every once in awhile we get these kinds of posters that boost NWI because they hate Illinois politics.

Kmanshouse, I only wanted to do it to prove a point, because you doubted midwest1's claim.



Happy New Year!

P.S. Yesterday I drove through the old neighborhood of Lincoln Square and was able to enjoy a little meal at Barba Yanni's and enjoy seeing all the lights along the street.
