Sometimes the news media puts a black eye on Chicago, talking about all the murder and drive-by shootings.
I once heard the same dire statistics about New Orleans.
Well, I love New Orleans! It’s one of my favorite cities: the food, the art, the people, the jazz, the history. What’s not to like?
Chicago is also a good city. I was born and raised there. Honestly, every city has its good and bad areas. You have to know what places to avoid.
It’s the same with Chicago: we have good and bad areas. However, most Chicagoans are friendly, and Chicago has great restaurants, museums, sports and theater.
So don’t let the Media scare you away!
