Small towns, big city
July 09, 2015 • Leave a Comment
Chicago is a beautiful and amazing city. Despite my love/hate relationship with this city, it is now, my home. "Chicago" is what I answer, now, when someone asks me, "where are you from?" There is a local commercial that equates this city to being made up of a bunch of small towns that are all gathered into one big city. Likening the neighborhoods to the small towns scattered about the non-city Midwest. Having grown up in a small town in the Midwest, I would say that it is NOT a stretch to say that about the neighborhoods here. Store clerks in our neighborhood know us by face, if not name. We bump into families from school and our sports teams, daily. Our involvement in sports has lead us to meet and make friends in other communities. Which we run into, all the time, too. A city made up of small towns, yes, I can get on board with that.
