America's Most Miserable Cities - Yahoo! Real Estate
Having been to Chicago, I'd hate too see the other *two* cities that are worse..
It was icky, dirty, loud, and nobody seemed to give half a shit about anyone but themselves. Add to that the fact that you have some of the worst rush hour traffic I've ever seen (and I thought ours was bad because it lasts 2-3 hours, and you're doing 25 in a 75...)
No offense, of course.
Time for you to move to Indiana Annie! We are right next door!
Wonder who else on here I could get to move to Indiana?
So, is this what we can expect Obama to do to America...do for it what he did for Chicago, which was apparently nothing?
Seriously? That's reaching, I think. Most *people* are responsible for the condition their cities are in, and/or deteriorate TO...
Funny you say that, I've been giving that some thought. How's teaching openings?
LOL! Wisconsin too much like home?
Wisc is even colder than Chicago. And those hills! I'm used to flat, flat.
I'm surprised you didn't like Chicago, as a visitor I mean. Nearly everyone I've known have a great time visiting. I'm in the Far West burbs and love time in the City. But it's very expensive and taxes are astronomical, worse than here, which is saying a lot. Our state taxes are sky high and going higher. It's ridiculous.
Once you get to where you're going, it's nice..but getting there AIN'T half the fun.
Stayed in a hotel in downtown Chicago a dozen or so years back.. Was late afternoon, didn't want to go anywhere for dinner..the hotel clerk said there was a Wendy's 3 blocks away..
It should not have taken more than an hour to travel 3 blocks and back. That's just wrong in every sense of the word.
Did you drive? Arggg, never drive once you park the car. As you say, traffic is horrendous and in the Loop so many one way streets. We get down there, park and walk. Of course I have the luxury of not going down after 3 or before 7pm. Rush hour begins here about 6am-9:30, begins again around 2:30-7pm.
