Well said. I am from Chicago and I 100% agree with you. When relocating to a new area, its your responsibility to adapt to the culture and the people, not the other way around. Between the ridiculous taxes in Illinois, corrupt, rude people, this is not the city I was born and raised. People used to be decent and family oriented but that's all changed for the worst. Take care and keep posting. Soon-to-be-ex-Chicagoan

Quite the rant. Why so bitter and angry? Happy you've found alternatives that suit your values and I'm sure the locals in Chapel Hill feel the same about you.

Old Fashion Neighborhood living - 1/29/2014
My husband and I are life long residents of the Chicago area and have lived in Glen Ellyn since 1998. It is a comfortable, walkable, old fashion neighborhood where you know your neighbors and are safe. Homes are set way back from the tree lined streets. Where we live we have two train stations to downtown Chicago, bus service locally and access to major expressways. It is very much like living in a college town with numerous highly regarded public and private colleges. Check out College of DuPage at cod.org - and that's just the community college! Access to top quality healthcare and specialists; shopping, restaurants etc. The only thing I don't love are the property taxes but I guess that's the admission ticket to this community.
