The largest city Northwest of Chicago. It is home of the Elgin watches, with 11 companies nation-wide. Has 3 public High schools: Elgin High, Larkin High, and Gifford Street High/ Central (for the little bad ass teenagers). Elgin has a community college. People from Elgin/ Elginites, get along very well with people from Carpentersville, Rockford, Bensenville, Waukegan, and Chicago. Now just like any other large city Elgin has a high crime rate. Elgin also has a very nice side of town and a very grimey side of town. Also known as the cutt. In around the 70's gangs started getting big in Elgin. As of now the MLD's "run" Elgin. People might also know Elgin by its nicknames like: Evil~E, HellGin, Da Gin, Da ELG & Da E~Town. Now people who never lived in Elgin should never look down on Elgin. It has upcoming musicians, athletes etc. I will always love Elgin this is my hometown. I'm repping Da Evil~E like a mascot!
