City that raised from the ashes (was totally destroyed in a great fire), and in testament of will/ability of mankind, Chicago was rebuilt, better taller wider and prouder, welcoming all opportunity to make self/community... Including world's first skyscrapers, first feats of pure brick, to innovative steel frames that have led to the boom of beautiful skyscrapers of great cities all around world!
Chicago's a busy hustling but friendly city with something for everyone! Good business/work opportunity (many fortune 500), relatively affordable cost of living, diverse restaurants, clubs/nightlife, family friendly parks/museums (Navy Pier, parks all along lake front), concerts (Lollapalooza, House of Blues, largest free music festival), Shopping (magnificent mile/Woodsfield mall), Sports lover's paradise (Cubs/Sox, Da Bears!, Bulls, Blackhawks etc)… Many diverse communities, from suburban to urban, all identify as "Chicago'ins"! There's many amazing cities, but no place quite like good old Chicago!
