racine or milwaukee or north chicago

by christin40

I am thinking about one of these three cities to move to while my fiancee is in Basic Training and AIT in Great Lakes I know every city has it's bad parts, but which one would be the safest for me

Re: racine or milwaukee or north chicago

Rather than answer "none of the above", I'd suggest investigating several other communities close to Great Lakes: Lake Bluff,Northbrook, Glenview and Libertyville--all in Illinois.

Milwaukee is a gem of a city. They have great music in the summer - lots of festivals, and there are good restaurants.

Re: racine or milwaukee or north chicago

One thing to consider might be how often you will be able to see your fiance. I would suspect the answer would be not very much during the Basic part and just weekends during any advanced training.
I would not stay in North Chicago if you can avoid it. I don't know about Racine or Milwaukee. You could consider some of the areas further west or south such as Lake Bluff, Mudelein, Libertyville or Waukegan. Even though these areas are better than North Chicago you may still want to check out the areas.
Just to make sure, you are talking about the city of North Chicago and not the north side of Chicago, correct?
(I lived in North Chicago until 1966 and right now I live about 10 miles from North Chicago.)

I don't know much about North Chicago, but between Racine and Milwaukee, I would pick Milwaukee. Get an apartment either on the East Side or in Bay View. These are both generally safe areas and are close to everything you would want to experience in Milwaukee. Like the response above there is lots of fun and great dining available. You would also be on the lake in either of those areas. Rents are fairly reasonable. Another alternative is a suburb just north of Milwaukee called Shorewood. This is a VERY safe area, and is only 15 minutes from downtown. Rents are slightly higher there. I know a lot of people who are from Racine and now live in Milwaukee, they commonly describe Racine as "trashy."

Henry Reuss Federal Plaza (1983)

by yooperprof

Opinions are divided about the shockingly blue downtown building. Its kind of short, and squat, but the large floor sizes are ideal for office efficiency. The bands of color stand out dramatically, some would say tastelessly. But it certainly does add color to the Milwaukee streetscape. (310 W. Wisconsin Ave.)

Privately owned, nonetheless the building is occupied entirely by US Federal agencies.

Helfaer Community Service Building (1973)

by yooperprof

The Helfaer Community Service Building houses offices and community space for the Milwaukee Jewish Federation and Associated Agencies. It's the work of important modernist architect Edward Durrell Stone (1902-78), and I think it's a successful and articulate expression of mid-20th century American/Internationalist style.

E.D. Stone was involved with many important monumental projects in major American cities. Among the "classics" which he helped design are such edifices as Radio City Music Hall, the original Museum of Modern Art, and 2 Columbus Center in New York City, the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., and the very tall Aon Building (formerly the Amoco Building) in Chicago. He was a dedicated minimalist in design, and sometimes his minimalism was "too much," but here in Milwaukee at the Helfaer Community his minimalism seems "just right." (Located at 1360 N. Prospect)

"The Mexican Fiesta International"

This festival started as a celebration for Mexican Independance Day, and is now one of the largest of it's kind in the midwest. There's lots of music dancing and food to be enjoyed. Just watch out for the jalapeno eating contest, it could ruin the rest of your trip!
