elgin and aurora have magnificent downtown architecture, but they lack the vibrancy and foot traffic of downtown evanston or oak park. elgin and aurora each have a single focal point tower from their pre-war golden ages, but the rest of their downtown areas are decidedly low-rise. of the group, only downtown evanston really manages to cobble enough highrises together into an arrangement that we could call a skyline of note.
