LAkeview is also home to the chicago cubs

reflection From the project we all gained knowledge that Chicago is bigger

than the “loop” and the magnificent mile. Chicago is filled with many different people who all have their own culture, lifestyle, religion, and jobs. It was an authentic Chicago experience because we took a look into a day of the life of someone from Lakeview. We took public transportation, walked, stopped into the local stores and food places that a person would encounter in their daily life in Lakeview. One surprise Lakeview offered to us is that even though considered Chicago, Lakeview does not have the same fast paced style as “the Loop” has.
