I made a touch decision recently, and I'm going to SAIC in Chicago for grad school. I've never been. I didn't even get to visit before I had to decide. I've lived in or round Fort Worth, Texas my whole life. A large city, but not an urban center in the way Chicago is.
So, I wanna know everything I need to know. These are only the questions I can think of, which is probably a severely limiting factor:
What are good neighborhoods to live in near downtown (SAIC is there)?
What's it like having small dogs?
What is the parking situation? Do you rent a space like in other places? How much?
Is it practical to bring my car and my motorcycle? If not, which?
What, in general, can't I miss? Food?
One specific thing I wanna know is what shows/documentaries about food specifically, but also about Chicago in general are there?
