Chicago is a OK city but w/ugly,selfish,two faced,people in it!
Traffic galore and people are NOT friendly because why U may ask... THE weather sucks here all year round and there is no nature to visit only made up parks and garbage hills to ski on....!
Too bloody cold in winter,no spring and summers are so humid that u may think you are in Florida without the Ocean!
Lake Michigan has constant pollution problems since Michigan & Indiana factories let all their S... in it & than the dumb asses swim ,what is known as,the BEACH right next to busy Lake Shore Drive .....
Rent expensive and NO parking so be sure to pay your collage tuition in parking tickets...
Aggressive cops will give you ticket for anything since Chicago is so corrupt you wouldn't believe!
I got a $150.00 ticket for asking a cop if I could go around them since I have been waiting for 30 minutes behind a cop car in a one way street,and nothing was happening,just Ch. cops talking and laughing.
I wrote 5 letters to the mayor that Im NOT paying the fine and they kept sending bigger and bigger balance until one day ,i guess i was persistent,that they just told me to pay only the $150.00 and they will leave me alone!
Thats just one example.

And lets not even talk about the FACT how many people are sick here with upper and lover respiratory tracts and asthma !
i lived here for 15 Y.,don't ask why! So I know what Im talking about and Im soooooooooo happy to turn my back on this "stock up" town that has very little to offer as far as good health and happiness goes.
Restaurants are diverse that I will say but who cares if the people in them are the unhappiest people I have ever seen and I have been around the World.
So visit for like a year and than make your decision .
I do NOT recommend Chicago nor IL to live in since there is NO jobs on top of everything.
Go west or east .

You sound like a truly angry and unhappy person, I hope I do not meet up with you when I am out on the town in Chicago. You might ruin my evening. Actually Travel And Leisure Magzine just did a survey on the friendliness of U. S. cities and for its size Chicago is one of the most friendly. Chicago Beaches are open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, thats about 120 days. During the beach season, because of summer rain storms which sometimes wash polutants into the lake there are pollution advisories for about 20 of those 120 days. Beach waters are tested everyday to assure they meet health standards. I hope you can get all your problems ironed out and I hope you can start to enjoy our great City of chicago!

Martina, I am not into blogging discussions that go south. I am a fan of education and research. I hope all is well in Cali, and the Statisticians are wrong. Good luck... http://www.forbes.com/2011/03/16/cities-where-the-economies-are-getting-worse.html

Martina, many people have said some of the same things that you have said about Chicago. My step-sisters and brothers live there. I live in Tennessee. I heard that there are piles of trash in the neighborhoods. I have heard on the news that Chicago is corrupt and had a corrupt governor. So, I think that your story is true, yet, humorous! Sking on piles of garbage....lol.
