Hmm - no posts. This is a pretty good non-downtown thread that people always say they want to see.

Chicago looks impressive from up above, because of the skyscrapers. But from ground level, yuck!! Ugly m.f.

Those areas do not look very vibrant at all. I thought Pilsen was supposed to be a great area; looked like a rundown abondoned neighborhood to me. I didn't see any people in the picks.
Maybe there is a reason we always stick to the Skyline shots.
