Ten Reasons I Love Skokie – Pete Podolsky

I’ve lived in Skokie for 17 years and try to be active in the community. Here’s my top 10 in no particular order:

10. Skokie Park District – for so many reasons.

9. Wednesdays on the Green – been to almost every one of them since inception.

8. The Skokie Public Library – One of the best around.

7. The unspoken rule that everyone holds the door open for the next person!

6. The Skokie Police Department – They won’t hesitate to knock on my door at 10pm to let me know I left the trunk open on my car…again.

5. Skokie Public Works – Thanks for keeping Skokie up and running.

4. 4th of July Fireworks.

3. North Branch Yoga – Thankful for this studio to be located in Beautiful Downton Skokie.

2. The Skokie Bike/Walk Trail.

1. The Backlot Bash – The biggest fun of the summer.
