Comprising the Upper and Lower North Shore, The North Shore is the prestigious part of Sydney, where rich people live and drive expensive cars (such as BMWs, Jaguars and Mercedes).

Private schools on the North Shore include Abbotsleigh, Barker, Joey's, Knox Grammar, Loreto Kirribilli, Loreto Normanhurst, Pius Pymble Ladies College, Ravenswood, Riverview, Roseville College, Shore School, Sydney Grammar (no public schools)

The Orange County of Middle America. An area of about 10 exclusive suburbs along Lake Michigan just north of Chicago. The area includes Evanston, Wilmette, Glenview, Northfield, Winnetka, Kenilworth, Glencoe, Northbrook, Deerfield, Highland Park and Lake Forest. The area is most noted for it's extreme wealth, huge homes, and mothers who spend more time at the manicure salon than with their Land Rover driving children.
If you want your children to grow up thinking the first three letters of the alphabet are "B, M, W" then this is the place for you.

A wealthy area off of Chicago and on the lake. Known for expensive cars, large homes, and lake-front properties, this exclusive area is not quite as bad as most assume, and the schools in the area give an excellent education to the lucky children who live there. Not everyone is a stuck up rich kid.

The north shore is the area just north of Chicago along lake Michigan, running from Evanston all the Way up to Lake Forest. It was infamized by the movie "Mean Girls" and is most noted for its tremendous wealth and 17 year olds driving their parent's lexus, bmw, or range rover. People from all areas despise the north shore, and especially New Trier High School
Just watch the movie "Mean Girls" and you'll know exactly what the north shore is.

We're not from Illinois and we're definitely not from the Midwest. The North Shore of Chicago has its own culture, lifestyle and traditions that only we know. We went to public school because they are better than the private ones. We may not have the ocean, but we certainly have beaches. We've had countless movies filmed in or about our area. We know New Trier will always win. We love partying with Scooter & worship Sarki's even though it's been shut down numberous times for health code violations. We're always 20 minutes from the city. Michael's fries, Kafeine's couches, EStreet's prices, Homer's ice cream, Buff Joe's wings, and Denny's late at night will always hold a special place in our hearts. We're rich, we're stuck up, we're better than you (especially the west suburbs) - and we know it. We're the North Shore of Chicago.

full of 7 year olds walking around in Juicy to 17 year olds with designer dayplanners. people here give their children a range rover for their 16th birthday. they also pay hundreds of dollars PER SEMESTER for a parking spot at school for that car. Here teens wear the hottest trends to the most expensive outfits that some people just counties away wouldn't even put their finger on. people mistake us for the north shore hawaii, but we are incomparable. people here think they dominate because of their high class parents, their flashy clothes and their money. people get excited about autographs, not hear, people here actually meet the person.

Ahhhhh, yes. The North Shore. If you don't know what it is, it's the mega rich upper-class subarban town that is directly north of Chicago. I can confidently talk about the North Shore, since I have grown up there my whole life and still live there. Ok, first of all, NOT EVERYONE is filthy rich. Most of the population here definitly is, but there are regular families with average (and yes, even below average incomes). Secondly, NOT EVERY girl is a snobby, stuck-up bitch that gets to drive a BMW (paid by daddy's credit card, of course). Duh, there are some TOTAL spoiled bitches that I've met, but I've also met a lot of nice people. And, not all the guys are rich jocks either. Sadly, there probably are more bitchy girls then there are nice ones though. Thirdly, I want to get one thing straight. Being wealthy has NOTHING to do with a someone's personality. The way their parents raised them and taught them has to do with how the kid will turn out. Me, for example. It's a fact that I live in a wealthier family, but I've been raised to not judge people and I have really good morals because of my parents. I'm EXTREMELY thankful that I can live the type of life I do, and I never take money for granted. I don't have any designer clothes, and I actually love to shop at thrift stores in Evanston. I have really awesome friends, and I'm not even that popular (well, New Trier is huge, so it's not easy to be popular anyways, lol). So basically, the North Shore can be bad, but it's not a nightmare. It doesn't matter anyways, because I've already decided I'm going to move to New York City, or just some far away place when I get older. Last thing; a lot of people from here say "Who WOULDN'T want to live here?! It's like, totally awesome!!!" To that, I say "A lot more people then you think.....dumbass"
A lot of people in the North Shore think they are "emo"

*emo boy 1* - "Hey Dan! Like my new Fall Out Boy shirt?! It's SOOOO original, isn't it?? Even though 500 other kids have this shirt, it doesn't matter, because I bought it FIRST!!!"
*emo boy 2*- "Totally! OMG, did I tell you?! I went to my usual stalking spot at Pete Wentz house, and he yelled to me "Tell you and your fucking friends to GO AWAY and stop digging in my garbage!" Dude, we're like, best friends now, I can totally feel it.
*emo boy 1* "That's sooo intense. Hey, wanna cut wrists after school at Sam's? I'm bringing the razors this time!!!"
*emo boy 2* "You know it!"
