If I'm not mistaken, I believe UIC's also considering some off-campus, North Lawndale sites near where Obama did some community outreach and canvassing.
Personally, I would be disappointed if some place other than Chicago got the library, but I would be friggin furious if those a**holes in NYC got it. Especially since that's likely where he'll move his family in 2016 when they leave the White House. They don't care at all about the Obamas there.
(By the way, I just moved back to Chicago after living in New York for the past few years because I couldn't stand how obnoxious people were there. I think I missed the boat on the New York I wanted to live in by 30 years. However, I'm more than thrilled to be back in Chicago, the best/my favorite city in this country!)
