I like Oak Park but it seems to be stagnating. The way things are going, Naperville may soon eclipse it as Chicagoland's #2 downtown. I was in Naperville last week and there is a shitload of construction going on there. Plus you have the riverwalk.

Oak Park has the city feel and the better mass transit, but damn it I really hate how they have that goofy suburban shopping center with acres of parking right in the midst of downtown, and there seems to be very little new development happening.
