Moving to Chicago
I am new to this list, but it looks like some great info. DH landed a job in Chicago last year, and the kids and I are selling the house in DC and moving west. Would anyone be willing to weigh in on their favorite neighborhood/town? We are hoping to buy a vintage home (bungalow or colonial) in an active town walkable to shops, train, library, coffee. I will have two kids in high school and one in middle school. We have been looking at Evanston and Oak Park. Any other suggestions? Would anyone recommend living in the city proper?
