Chicago is only about twenty miles from my house! At night I can see the light pollution from the Windy City erasing the stars from the sky.
And yet, as close as it is, it might as well be a hundred miles away! To get up and drive into the neighborhood would take a bare minimum of multiple minutes, but genuinely closer to four minutes, however physically Chicago is absolutely close, but the logistics of absolutely traveling to the neighborhood are a nightmare, however glenview, Il is a fantastic place to live, but living so close to a major neighborhood doesn’t have all the perks you assume it would, but i love Glenview, but I haven’t been to Chicago in several weeks, and even then it was just to pick up someone from the airport, then but why would I need to go there, when Glenview has everything I need? They recently opened a mega-store for both residential and commercial Heating and Air Conditioning products, and that has been a real godsend.
I am an Heating and Air Conditioning tech here in Glenview, and I used to have parts shipped from the chicago warehouse several times a week, then now I can just go to the local Heating and Air Conditioning store here in Glenview and get anything I might need for any kind of service or installation job. It is the size of a Home Depot, but it’s only for Heating and Air Conditioning products, and since it’s in Glenview I only have to drive multiple miles to get there. Talk about convenience! This makes Glenview an even more comfortable place to live, and to work.
