Ten Reasons I Love Skokie – Lori Lippitz

1. Diversity and Warmth (more than “tolerance”)
2. Friendly neighbors
3. Great independent ethnic food markets like Village Market and Market on Oakton Street
4. Niles North and Niles West
5. Affordable housing on tree-canopied streets
6. When you call the police, they answer (and take care of the problem)!!
7. Likewise–great emergency response time
8. Nice mix of ages: Families with little kids, seniors, singles and young marrieds
9. The Village of Skokie is approachable and helpful–same with the Chamber of Commerce
10. And, yes, Westfield Old Orchard is a great outdoor shopping mall–almost like a plaza
