Looking at this forum everyday as well as skyscraperpage I never seem to see much about the south side of chicago. All the photo tours are of the north side. I walked from the museum of science and industy to downtown last summer and it dident seem that bad. It was clean, there were nice parks along the lake front and many tree lined streets. It also seems that the south side gets alot of bad press as well, just turn on WGN for the nightly news. Its eaither a shooting or an apartment fire. Tell me these things don't happan on the north side as well. I am requesting an indepth tour of the south side, I hear there is much new construction in the area, will it ever be high rises along the souther lake front? How about the proposed grey line, is that going to happan in the near future, it seems like the best proposal out there. After high school I plan to move to Chicago and I want the views of people who live their. I don't want to live in a really expensive area eaither. Thier just has to be a couple of things in the area. Transit, a park and a basketball court. I have been to both areas and I would have to say that the north side is more viabrant but what do you think the south side will be like in 10 years? So chicago people tell me what you think. North Side or South Side??

Thats some good info. Thanks much. To be honest I could never live on the North Side. I see the south side being more distressed than the north side and I want to help fix that. I would love nothing more than to buy a old house and fix it up. I looked at realtor.com and they are dirt cheap. If more people did that than I could see the south side devolping into something like the north side. But the south needs its own distincitive style. I would never fan myself with a stack of benjamins. I never have a stack to begin with. I think I would fit right in down there, I don't dress fancy, and mind my own business. Does anyone have any pics of these places.?.?...
