PostSubject: Where are you from??   March 8th 2012, 9:55 pm

Just thought I would start this thread to see where everyone is from. Where did you grow up, and why are you living where your at now?

Me, I grew up in the city. I lived in a single parent household with my 2 brothers, so yes we moved a lot.
We usually lived in the shittiest areas on the North side. Albany Park (Lawrence and Kedzie), Lakeview (Irving and Ashland) yes it was a very shitty area before the yuppies took over, and Humboldt Park to name a few. I'm living in Streamwood now, mainly for my kids, and too keep my ass out of trouble.

When i first got to the states, we lived in Cali , after couple months we made it to Rolling meadows since my Grandparents lived here.When my gf was pregnant , i moved to Carpentersville so i could take her to the appointments and all that good stuff. Plus i worked in South Elgin , So it was closer to my job at the time. 6 months later , We moved back to Rolling Meadows . I think ive been here for 16-18 years of my life.

I grew up in Hollywood/North Park just north of Albany Park like Bryn Mawr/Central Park. I lived in Lake View, West Loop and Uptown before moving to Naperville. I'll always be a city boy but it is pretty cool having a driveway and a garage Smile

My wife grew up in Naperville so she's got family here plus she works out here so it only makes sense.

lol, I work across the street from McKinley, and play basketball on the outdoor courts in the summer with all them thugs. Usually at lunch and after work sometimes. Back Of The Yards aint no joke now a days, heard it wasn't as bad 20yrs ago. We might know some of the same people, I work with some people that grew up in Back of the Yards, and I have a lot of friends in Oak Lawn/Evergreen Park area.

I tried to stay out of that craziness as much as possible. I played a lot of ball at Hollywood Park back when you could get really good games going there with the Army Reserve guys who used to run all around Legion Park before Northside Prep was there and it was an Army Depot.

The Northeastern and North Park basketball teams used to come out there too... I don't even think Northeastern has team anymore!

Small world, never joined gang but still managed to give parents plenty of headaches. Just that kind of neighborhood. Don't think Back of Yards changed, compared to McKinley Park. Night and day their.

I was born in Chicago and we moved to Palatine when I was 4. I lived there till I was 20 and I decided to move to Arkansas. Came home one day and told my wife "I'm moving to Arkansas if you want to come with great. If not I'll drop you off at your Mom's on my way out.

After the divorce I moved back to Il. First to Palatine then to Addison and then Vernon Hills.

Deb (Wife #2) and I decided we were tired of cold and snow and two and a half years ago we moved to Adairsville Ga. We love it here and I don't plan on ever moving again.

Born in Charleston, SC and lived on a barrier island for 13 years. They shut the base down and we were packing to move to TX when my dad got an opportunity in Jacksonville, FL.

Moved to FL the day I turned 13 lived there until I was 19. My parents are still there, love the beach and I do not see them ever moving.

Moved to Virginia Beach, VA (lets just say it was for a boy and leave it at that). Starting working at Household Credit at the ripe age of 19 and right before I turned 25 they asked if I wanted to come to Chicago.

Been in Chicago since May 2005, came here because of work, stayed because I love it here.

Been here all my life on the Southeast side of Chicago near Hammond, IN. Never really left the neighborhood but I do work downtown and have worked in the south suburbs.
I'm only 24 though so thats something for my time here.

Born in Kankakee, IL, moved to Elkhart, IN just before I started kindergarten. When I was in 3rd grade we moved to Utica, MI and then in '79 we moved to McHenry, IL and have been here ever since. Nice area and close to either Milwaukee or Chicago yet far enough away from them to enjoy the quieter suburban living.
