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!

I am sorry you had a bad experience, you probably crossed paths with some lout who was having a bad day, a worse day than usual. Unhappy people have lots of bad days. Remember you are living in a huge metro area which covers at least 2500 square miles and has a population of 10 million. There is a lot of "green space" if you know where to look. Go to google maps and just study the Chicago area maps to become oriented to the metro area. Look for the Forest Preserves. Do not go solo to any out of the way areas. As for the cold, the layering is a good idea and here are some more ideas: Go online or to the right store and find yourself a really good pair(top & bottom) of women's thermal underwear. Start with a couple of men's tee shirts in your size then put on the thermal top over those and one or two pair of thermal bottoms and then layer yourself up from there. A wool shirt and wool pants help stop the wind. Use some king of wind-stop or wind-breaker material also, if you need. Use really warm mittens...they're warmer than gloves. If neccessary get a real winter hat with ear flaps, you must stop the cold wind from blowing in your ears. Just another month or so and it will slowly start to warm-up. By the Ides of March, it won't be too bad! Then think of all the fun you can have at all the summer festivals in Chicago.
