A really cool college town. Distinct from the rest of the North Shore, especially Kenilworth, Wilmette, Winnetka, etc., because those are rich suburbs that are riddled with Republicans. Evanston is a hip liberal town that is the closest to Chicago.
The City of Evanston is named for a man called Dr. John Evans.
I want a neighborhoodie that says Evanston on it.

A Suburb of Chicago It is unlike any other suburb of Chicago. Not to be compared with Heighland Park or wilmette it is about perfectly half upper-class and half poor people and gang bangers and drug dealers! Surprisingly all these kids go the same schools although most of the rich kids go to heaven and badasses go to kinglab and chute. If any kid from Highland Park, Wilmette or Parkridge were to spend a day in an Evanston public school they wouldn't be breathing! But all in all Evenston is a great town for all people and most of the people get along!
Amazing town where anyone who comes out of It is ready to face the world and has much street credibility and has not been sheltered like Lake Forest, Parkridge, Highland Park, Wilmette and Skokie kids! Evanston is badass!

Suburb of Chicago on the "North Shore". Home to Northwestern University (go Wildcats), large, ritzy houses and nice cars. Evanston has an expansive downtown with plenty to do (if you've got the cash). See Panera, Borders, the Gap, Starbucks (x3), Urban Outfitters, the Keg (a notorious 18+ bar), Kafein (awesome coffee shop) and NU.

Also the location of the movie "Mean Girls"
