My Kind of Town, Chicago

Posted by: Jennifer Ferm

There’s no denying the momentum in Chicago right now. Everywhere you turn, it seems that Chicago is smack-dab-in-the-middle on everyone’s radar. It appears journalists and Hollywood alike can’t get enough of the Windy City. Some might wonder what created all of this hype and why more people seem to be humming along to the tune of “Sweet Home Chicago.”

The Obamas certainly haven’t helped to keep Chicago a secret on the map. With loads of media attention during the Grant Park rally on Election Day and spotlight coverage of the President-elect’s Hyde Park residence, Chicago has been a constant media focus the past couple of months. Even though the media attention has somewhat died down from the excitement of the election, people everywhere are buzzing about Chicago.

According to a CNN video, (http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/politics/2008/12/05/am.cho.obama.hometown.spotlight.cnn?iref=videosearch) Chicago has become a highlight on the map. Recently named “City of the Year” by GQ Magazine, the city also has a huge attraction for film, literature and architecture. The residents also add to this appeal due to their “Midwestern charm,” also described as friendly people for a large city.

It seems that the “Second City” is vying to be number one.
